Bladon., 1772. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. 188. 5 volumes bound in fine contemporary tree calf, spine ornately gilt in compartments with ornaments of an urn, what looks like a palm tree, and a generic flower, black morocco label; a little wear to joints and spine slightly dried, but generally a fine copy. The item by Blackburne is the third in the volume, but I have listed it first because of his tenuous association with Dr. Johnson. He published a commentary on Johnson's life of Milton in 1780. Blackburne had also written an account of Johnson's relationship with Thomas Hollis in the same year. None of the pamphlets is particularly rare, nor could they be said to have any distinct thematic connection, except for opposition to total acceptance of the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Church of England. Volumes such as this are often disbound and their historical integrity destroyed. This one stays as it is; the autograph, probably contemporary, of "M. Wyvill" appears on the front paste-down end-paper. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
