About this Item

. Hardcover. John Murray, 1864, 1st edn. in polished brown cloth in near-mint condition with no fading to spine and bright gilt title; blind tooling to front and back; frontis engraving of author's portrait after Kneller; contains coat-of-arms of Granvilles of Worcestershire and bookplate of novelist Malcolm Macdonald; xvi+208pp incl 5 appendices and 7p index; The introduction, referring to an earlier, heavily redacted, edition, says (using the letter 'f' for the old cursive 's': "The Extracts which were taken by Lady Sarah, and which were feen by Lord Campbell, were far, however, from being fo full as the prefent Publication, for this is taken directly from the original Diary in the Handwriting of Lady Cowper, wherein many Pafsages omitted by Lady Sarah appear in their original Form. Moreover, a Portion of the Diary, from April to July, 1720, was not tranfcribed by Lady Sarah at all, and therefore not feen by Lord Campbell, and indeed it was only difcovered at Panfhanger fo late as laft Year [=1863]. Thus the Diary as here publifhed is as nearly as pofsible a Tranfcript of Everything which Lady Cowper has left in this Shape. The Names which were in Cypher are here given in full, and the Spelling is fomewhat modernifed, but that is all the Change it has undergone." 8x5". . . . . Books ship from the US and Ireland.
