About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for JUNIUS. STAT NOMINIS UMBRA by [Junius] Francis, Sir Philip.

Description:

2 volumes. A new edition of the revised version of the "Letters," with a dedication to the English people and a preface. With engraved portrait illustrations throughout, and with two frontispiece illustrations for each volume. 8vo, in a fine contemporary binding of full calf, the covers with gilt ruled borders enclosing a wide frame of blind rolled tools. The spine features gilt lettering in two panels, the remaining three with an unusual circular floral decoration done in gilt, pointille, and blind tooling. xxxi, 252; iii, 284. A very fine set in a very striking contemporary binding. The "Letters of Junius" were originally contributed to the London "Public Advertiser" from the 21st of January 1769 to the 21st of January 1772 and were intended to discredit the ministry of the Duke of Grafton. Their interest lies in their style and the controversy regarding their authorship. In the former they imitate Swift, Bolingbroke, and Tacitus, and use those influences to perfect the popular practice of using personal abuse in political controversy. The Encyclopedia Britannica states it succinctly: "The white heat of his malignity animates the whole." The authorship mystery kept people guessing for two generations, and discussions had hardly ceased by 1910. Jospeh Parkes, the author with Herman Merivale of MEMOIRS OF SIR PHILIP FRANCIS (1867), gives a list of over forty persons who had been supposed to be Junius, among them Edmund Burke, Edward Gibbon, Horace Walpole, and Charles Lee, a general in the American Revolution. Opinion has since laid responsibility solidly upon Sir Philip Francis, miscellaneous writer and sometime dean of Lismore. Bookseller Inventory # 6921

Variously attributed, "the authorship of the Junius letters has been the subject of innumerable publications of various merit. The case for Philip Francis, first proposed by John Taylor in 1816, has established itself as by far the most probable, though categorical proof is still not forthcoming" (ODNB) Size: 8vo.

Book Description London printed by T. Bensley for Vernor and Hood, 1796. Collected edition 1796, 2 volumes, complete set, 8vo, approximately 240 x 145 mm, 9¼ x 5½ inches, engraved additional title pages to each volume with vignette and dated 1797, 16 engraved portrait plates depicting famous political figures, including Edmund Burke, John Wilkes, Judge Blackstone, Lord Mansfield, the Duke of Grafton and George III, pages: (1), xl, (4), 325; (1), 366, including notes at rear of each volume and index at end of Volume II, wide margins, bound in full contemporary straight grained red morocco, gilt ruled border to covers, spine with 5 double raised bands with gilt rules and bands, lettered gilt, all edges gilt, gilt inner dentelles (turn ins), marbled endpapers. Spines faded, head and tail of spines slightly rubbed, a touch of rubbing to corners, one or two minor marks to covers, 2 tiny indentations on upper cover of Volume II, engraved title pages and most plates lightly foxed in the margins, contents otherwise clean, bindings tight and firm. A very good set. Junius was the pseudonym of the author of letters published in a London newspaper, The Public Advertiser, from January 1769 to January 1772, attacking George III and some of his ministers, especially the Duke of Grafton, Sir William Draper and Lord Mansfield, for the harm he saw being inflicted on the constitution. He is thought by some to be Sir Philip Francis M. P. secretary to Lord Chatham. The first authorised collected edition was published in 1772 and was followed by numerous editions up to the 1850s. Lowndes, Bibliographer's Manual, Volume II, page 1240: "It is a work which must always preserve its high place among the classics of England; the author was a first-rate master of the art of rhetorical invective".
