About this Item

2 volumes, folio, consisting of 140 twice-weekly numbers published between November 1752 and March 1754; pp. [6] 420; [6], 420; early 19th century quarter straight-grain black morocco over marbled boards, gilt lettering direct on spines; boards rubbed, but generally very good and sound. Edited by John Hawkesworth. "Unlike the Rambler, The Adventurer was, from the outset, planned as (probably two) volumes. From the beginning it is consecutively signed (a signature to each number of 3 leaves folio) as well as consecutively paginated; and at the end of No. 70 is printed 'The end of the First Volume'. Title-pages, Contents, and Mottoes were issued in 1753 and 1754" (Chapman & Hazen). Johnson contributed 29 of the 140 papers; other contributors included Joseph Warton, Bonnell Thornton, and Hawkesworth, among others. Chapman & Hazen, p. 136; Courtney & Smith, p. 39; Fleeman 52.11Ad/1. Bookseller Inventory # 23478
