Description:

410 pages, illustrated. "Published in Dublin in 1755, these gutsy and thoroughly uninhibited memoirs were immediately confiscated and destroyed by the author's outraged family, only a few copies escaping their pious wrath. This is an important historical source, known theretofore only to a few scholars, and never before published in a modern annotated edition. The memoirs were written to entertain and are indeed superbly entertaining; but their great value to the historian lies in the fact the Peter Drake, though gentle-born, lived and recorded the life of a common soldier and adventurer in an age whose historical records are almost exclusively the work of scholars and literary men." FINE HARDCOVER, GOOD DUST JACKET. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
