An Eighteenth-Century Correspondence is a delightful 1910 book, compiling the letters of many famous writers poets and politicians, published by John Murray and edited by Lilian Dickins and Mary Stanton.
Such characters mentioned in this book include Jonathan Swift, Robert Nugent, Charles Jenkinson and Sir Edward Turner, to name but a few.
The book can be described as good condition. Its blue cloth hardboards are showing some obvious signs of wear - discolouring, bumped corners, scuffing and sunned spine. Nevertheless, its binding still remains tight and strong.
Internally, pages are generally free of any writing, highlighting or markings. However, they are beginning to brown and there are signs of foxing throughout. This does not affect the quality of the read. Book contains many beautiful black and white illustrations of notable buildings, correspondence and people.
A delightful read for anybody interested in the intricate details of the lives of some of the most key historical figures of the last 300 years.
