ATHENIAN LETTERS: Or, the Epistolary Correspondence of an Agent of the King of Persia, Residing at Athens during the Peloponnesian War [Two Volumes]
London, 1810. Two volumes. Quarto, publisher's blue decorative cloth. A quite good set with some normal wear, foxing to contents and ownership marks on endpapers. Map present with a marginal tear of about an inch. Philip Yorke "with his brother wrote the greater portion of the 'Athenian Letters'. The work was projected as an academic exercise by Thomas Birch, who himself wrote some of the letters and edited the whole. Other contributers were Henry Coventry, John Green, Samuel Salter and Catherine Talbot. The vivacity and verisimilitude. which characterized the entire collection, placed it far above the ordinary level of academic compositions." - Dictionary of National Biography. A nice copy of this scarce set. OCLC 657074661. Bookseller Inventory # OS1095
