About this Item

Octavo. VII, [1], 494, [8]pp.Original full calf with gold tooling and gilt lettering on spine. Raised bands. Gold borders along covers. Printer's device on title-page. Decorative head- and tailpiece. Decorative initial. This volume starts the great debate between the conservative Edmund Burke and the intellectual godfather of the French Revolution, socialism and communism, Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In this volume Burke published his first comments on Rousseau. Burke's commentary on Rousseau continues in the 1762 Annual Register volume and culminates in Burke's attack on Rousseau contained in his 1791 "Letter to a Member of the National Assembly." This volume also contains the first published review of another great of the 18th century, the moral philosopher and economist of capitalism, Adam Smith. See the volume description for more of what Burke has to say about Rousseau and Adam Smith as well as more information on the contents. The French and Indian War receive lot of attention with the famous battle of Quebec between Generals Wolfe and Montcalm reported in full as well as the feats of an American original, Sir William Johnson, who defeats the French at Fort Niagara with a force of British troops, colonial militia and Indians from the Five Nations. Age wear on binding with boards detached but present. Head and tail of spine chipped. Rubbing on covers and spine. Free front endpaper and fly leaf detached. Ex-library copy with bookplate on inside of front cover and stamp on title-page. Previous owners' s ex-libris on inside of front board. Very minor age-toning along paper margin. Binding in overall poor, interior in very good condition. In 1758 Edmund Burke approached the London publisher Robert Dodsley with a proposal to publish an annual journal of historical, scientific and literary developments affecting England, its colonies and the world. Dodsley accepted and in the following year published the "Annual Register or View of the History, Politics and Literature for the Year 1758." Burke did most of the writing and editing of the Annual Register in the early years and his involvement with the Annual Register continued for about thirty years. The publication still exists today and is published by Keesling Worldwide and records the major events in every country in the world. Bookseller Inventory # 25385
