Junius
London - Gale, Curtis and Fenner et al, 1813. London - Gale, Curtis and Fenner et al, 1813 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Junius is a scarce collection of lettersillustrated with twelve portraits by Mr. Edward Bocquet a historical engraver, from original paintings. Junius was the pseudonym of a writer who contributed a series of letters to the Public Advertiser, from 21 January 1769 to 21 January 1772. The signature had been already used, apparently by him, in a letter of 21 November 1768. These and numerous other personal letters were not included in his Letters of Junius collection, published in 1772. The identity of Junius is open to question and debate, and may never be finally resolved unless documents are found which establish his identity. On the other hand scholars now generally support the identification with Sir Philip Francis. Condition: In a long grain morocco binding. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities and slight rubbing and marks to boards. Front hinge strained. Internally, generally firmly bound but with page 13 loosening. Bright but with occasional scattered foxing and offsetting from engravings to surrounding pages. Overall: VERYGOOD.
