About this Item

First edition. 8vo, contemporary full calf, the spine with blind tooled compartments between raised bands, one compartment with a paper title label lettered in manuscript, board edges tooled in blind, page edges sprinkled red. [xii], 80, 80, 80, 64, 80, 110 pp. A very pleasing and finely preserved copy, internally, quite fresh and clean, the paper crisp and the text-block sturdy and sound, the contemporary binding solid and with minor age-wear at the extremities. FIRST EDITION OF WHAT LOWNDES CALLED "A SCANDALOUS WORK." The author, a captain in the King’s Life Guards, published this series of letters reputed to be between and English peer and a French official between 1676 and 1689, claiming them to be secret diplomatic transactions previously concealed and now divulged. Modern historians are unsure and opinions conflicting in how much accuracy or reliance can be placed on the text. The author wrote a number of other historical works. Bookseller Inventory # 21893
