About this Item

Particularly biting attack on William Pulteney and Henry St. John, Viscount Bolingbroke, focusing on the latter's "ingratitude and treachery to the late Duke of Marlborough and the Earl of Godolphin" (p. 11) as well as his alliance with the Pretender, various alleged diplomatic errors with Spain, and lust for power and wealth. This rebuttal to Bolingbroke's self-vindication in the Craftsman periodical opens with a woodcut pictorial headpiece and decorative capital; the present example is => the first edition of the several-times reprinted diatribe (which has sometimes been attributed to Walpole himself as well as to William Arnall), with the half-title marked "Price One Shilling" and the original headpiece. 8vo (18 cm, 7.1"). 62 pp. ESTC T66320; Goldsmiths'-Kress 06912. Recent marbled paper?covered boards, front cover with printed paper label. Title-page trimmed closely, touching final letters of title, with loss of a few letters from publication information. Pages age-toned, with light to moderate waterstaining in the inner portions of many and dust-soiling to first and last; title-page with small smudge and half-title with neat repair from verso to a short tear; two pages with upper portions offset from now-absent laid-in item; one page with a few early inked doodles.
