Epistolary Correspondence, Containing Official, Political, and Explanatory Letters,

Morgan (James Jones, of Abergavenny)

Epistolary Correspondence, Containing Official, Political, and Explanatory Letters,

(with introductory Preface,) written upon patriotic points and particular occasions, to the Right Reverend Dr. Warren, bishop of Bangor, and to a member of the British House of Commons. In two parts.

Description: FIRST EDITION, 2 parts in 1 vol. (Part 2 has a separate title-page, omitting Richardson - and London - from the imprint), pp. lxii, [ii], 64, [4], ]65-] 168, 8vo, uncut in the original boards, a little stained and with cracks to spine, engraved armorial bookplate of the sixth Duke of Portland

Publication Details: Birmingham: Printed for the Author; by Swinney & Hawkins, Birmingham; and sold by Richardson & Co. London, and all other Booksellers, 1800

Notes: The Duke of Portland (presumably) has scrawled on the fly-leaf opposite the half-title; 'Most extraordinary & most stupid Nonsense !!, which to this cataloguer seems a fair summary. It is, at any rate, a nice piece of printing by a follower of Baskerville, Swinney - letter founder, printer, and bookseller. 5 copies only in ESTC, 3 in England, 2 in Wales (including Gladstone's Library).
