About this Item

First edition, second state of leaf H4r in vol. I (line 16 reading "qui auroit"); 2 vols, 4to, pp. [4], vii, [1], 568; [4], 606, [1]; engraved frontis portrait after a painting by William Hoare; contemporary full calf, red & green morocco labels on gilt decorated spines, slight cracking and minor restoration of the joints, but, all in all, a very good copy with the half-titles and errata, and with the engraved bookplates of Richard Hammond. Chesterfield's famous letters written to his son, Phillip Stanhope, his illegitimate child by one Mlle. du Bouchet, in Flanders. These 395 letters were prepared for publication by his widow, Lady Chesterfield, within a year of his death. While it must be remembered that the letters were private and not intended for publication, the work attained immediate popularity, and it remains an essential literary and historical document of the eighteenth century.
