About this Item

Two vlumes, duodecimos, dark brown modern linen, spines gilt ruled with new dark brown morocco gilt lettering pieces, some light internal waterstains, minor foxing and embrowning, small piece gone from one leaf of first volume with minimal loss of two letters only not affecting legibility of text, complete with the two leaves of publisher's ads at the end of the first volume; nice. This contains highly significant revisions and additions. Fielding no sooner had completed the original manuscript of the first edition (also published in 1742) than he began painstaking revisions, correcting several inconsistencies, polishing and improving both scenes and characters as well as subtly improving the syntax and adding a number of humorous passages as well as contributing the Table of Contents which was not in the first edition. Cross Fielding III, pages 305-306; not in Rothschild. Uncommon. Because of the value of this item, extra postal insurance or registry fees may be required. Bookseller Inventory # 0381
