Observations on the Present State of Denmark, Russia, and Switzerland. In a Series of Letters
London: Printed for T. Cadell, 1784. London:: Printed for T. Cadell,, 1784.. First edition.. Some foxing; a very good copy.. 8vo, recent quarter calf (retaining early red morocco label), marbled boards, ix, [7], 423, [1] pages. Interesting travel and observation of the discursive and anecdotal sort, ranging from explication of Russian exports and customhouses to the superstitions of Swiss shepherds to the publication of letters by Rousseau. ESTC notes, "William Andrews Clark Library has a copy of this with a MS. ascription of the work to the Rev. Francis Randolph; this noted for what it is worth, as evidence still not conclusive." (ESTC also reports a half-title in the copy at MnU, not present here.) Goldsmiths-Kress 12550.
