About this Item

Third edition of these letters from France, written by expatriate Englishmen who describe the state of contemporary political affairs while France mobilized in preparation for war; the missives are annotated by an anonymous editor who urges the public to beware "the devices of these profligate traitors" (p. x). The first letter is signed by Stone, with the others bearing no attributions?although the third letter mentions a French translation by M. Say of the writer's "Swiss Travels," which seems to indicate Helen Maria Williams. Meriting brief references are such interesting topics as the state of Catholicism in France, the vulnerability of American ships, and an expected shipment of pearl ash on its way from America. 8vo (20.7 cm, 8.1"). 36 pp. ESTC N1989; Sabin 92070. Removed from a nonce volume, with sewing holes; now in a Mylar folder. Half-title with small numerical stamp, pencilled notations, a bit of staining and two smears/blots of old red ink. Interior slightly age-toned but clean. Bookseller Inventory # 7152
