The Lucubrations of Isaac Bickerstaff, Esq. [The Tatler]
London: John Morphew, 1710. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Good Condition. Recased and respined in new leather with the original paneled calf laid back down on the covers; new endpapers - a very neat job. Modest dampstaining nearly throughout, scattered stains and foxing and, in a few spots, fading to discrete text sections. Browning and staining to some page edges, title repaired along the top edge and trimmed at the bottom, old signature on the top corner - but, overall, a good and legible copy of the scarce first edition and only folio edition. Complete in 271 parts, two volumes in one, the second title stained in the gutter as are the nearby pages. Founded by Richard Steele directly before he and Addison founded The Spectator, The Tatler had less than a two year run, but was enormously influential. Though scholars differ on the precise numbers, Swift wrote many of the pieces, Teerink tentatively suggests verse in 9, 238, and prose in 230, 21, 31, 67, 68, 249, 258. Teerink 531. Size: Folio. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Over 3 kilos. Category: Literature & Literary; Humour. Inventory No: 045444.
