Junius: Including Letters by the Same Writer Under Other Signatures. In two volumes
London - Henry G. Bohn, 1850. London - Henry G. Bohn, 1850 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A smart set of this investigation into the identity of the controversial political writer Junius, in an armorial fine binding. New Edition. Complete in two volumes. Featuring a page of facsimilies of the handwriting of Junius. 'To which are added his confidential correspondence with Mr. Wilkes, and his private letters to Mr H. S. Woodfall'. 'With new evidence as to the authorship, and an analysis by the late Sir Harris Nicolas'. Junius was the pseudonym of a writer who contributed a series of political letters to the Public Advertiser from 21 January 1769 to 21 January 1772 as well as several other London newspapers, such as the London Evening Post. Charges were brought against several people, of whom two were convicted and sentenced. Junius himself was aware of the advantages of concealment, as he wrote in a letter to John Wilkes dated September 18 1771. Two generations after the appearance of the letters, speculation as to the authorship of Junius was rife. Sir Philip Francis is now generally, but not universally, believed to be the author. Condition: In a full calfarmorial binding. Externally, smart with some shelfwear only. Slight marginal fading to the front board of Volume II. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and clean with just the odd spot or mark. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..
