8vo, Ex-library. The DNB notes,"Jenyns' prose style was regarded by his contemporaries as a model of ease and elegance." Dr. Johnson was not one of his admirers. Shortly after Johnson's death, Jenyns wrote an epitaph, in which occur the lines --"Boswell and Thrale, retailers of his wit, will tell you how he wrote, and talk'd, and cough'd, and spit." Chipping to backstrip extremities, moderate age-toning; overall a firm copy. Full brown calf. Very good. 2 vols. Bookseller Inventory #
