Scotch Modesty Displayed, in a Series of Conversations that lately passed between an Englishman and a Scotchman. Addressed to the Worthy Patriots of England.
Printed for John Bew, No. 28 Pater Noster Row, 1778. 16mo., First Edition, on laid paper; attractively bound in twentieth century grey boards, paper label lettered and ruled in black on upper board, small marginal chip in D4 (not affecting text), a remarkably bright, fresh, clean copy. Most attractive copy of a none-too-subtle satire on the supposed power of the Scots in the English establishment and society. The barb was evidently a popular one, for it reissued in the same year with a third printing in 1780. Rare.
