Letters Written by the Late Right Honourable: Chesterfield, Philip Dormer

Item Description: Printed for J. Dodsley in Pall-Mall, London, 1774. Bound in contemporary worn leather boards, rebacked spines with leather labels and gilt tooling in two volumes. With the half-titles present and the errata page placed at the end of Vol. II. With the handsome frontispiece of the Earl of Chesterfield after a painting by William Hoare in Vol. I. Printed on high quality laid paper. The hinges of both volumes have been inexpertly reglued. With the armorial bookplate of Henry King. In very good condition internally in a good plus, rather worn, binding. Line 16 on p. 55, reading "qui auroit". "Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield PC KG (1694– 1773) was a British statesman, and man of letters, and wit. He was born in London, and known as Lord Stanhope until the death of his father, in 1726. After being educated at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, he went on the Grand Tour of the Continent, to complete his education as a nobleman, by exposure to the cultural legacies of Classical antiquity and the Renaissance, and to become acquainted with his aristocratic counterparts and the polite society of Continental Europe. The impoverished widow of Chesterfield’s illegitimate son, Eugenia Stanhope, was the first to publish the book Letters to His Son on the Art of Becoming a Man of the World and a Gentleman (1774), which comprises a thirty-year correspondence in more than four hundred letters; begun in the 1737–38 period and continued until the death of his correspondent, Philip Stanhope, in 1768. Chesterfield wrote the greatest volume of letters in the eight-year period 1746–54; and, to refine his son’s command of languages, wrote him letters in French, English, and Latin, mostly instructive communications about geography, history, and Classical literature; Chesterfield’s later letters, addressed to Philip Stanhope, diplomat, are about politics. As a handbook for worldly success in the 18th century, the Letters to His Son give perceptive and nuanced advice for how a gentleman should interpret the social codes that are manners; thus, on 9 March 1748, Chesterfield advises Philip, against coarseness of demeanour: "I would heartily wish that you may often be seen to smile, but never heard to laugh, while you live. Frequent and loud laughter is the characteristic of folly and ill-manners; it is the manner in which the mob express their silly joy at silly things; and they call it ‘being merry’. In my mind, there is nothing so illiberal, and so ill-bred, as audible laughter. I am neither of a melancholy nor a cynical disposition, and am as willing and as apt to be pleased as anybody; but I am sure that since I have had the full use of my reason nobody has ever heard me laugh." Despite having been an accomplished essayist and epigrammatist in his time, the literary reputation of the 4th Earl of Chesterfield, as a narrative writer, derives from Letters to His Son on the Art of Becoming a Man of the World and a Gentleman (1774) and Letters to His Godson (1890), books of private correspondence and paternal and avuncular advice, which were not meant for publication." (Wikipedia) First Edition with the 1774 title page date and "March the 1st, 1774" at the bottom of the dedication to the Lord North. Bookseller Inventory # 459

Item Description: London: printed for J. Dodsley in Pall-Mall, 1774. Two volumes, 4to, engraved portrait frontispiece in each volume (different images) and pp. [iv], vii, [i], 568; [iv], 606, [1] errata; a very decent copy complete with half titles, in contemporary half calf, slightly worn, spines lettered in gilt with tool of a bird on a vase at the head of spine (see below). First edition of this classic series of letters, which taught (according to Samuel Johnson), 'the morals of a whore and the manners of a dancing master'. But then Johnson was, famously, no friend of Chesterfield; and many since have praised his prose style and wit. There is also a fund of information about upper-class eighteenth century life which would be hard to find anywhere else. This copy seems to have belonged to the contemporary collector Major Thomas Pearson (1740?-81), whose library was sold by the Egertons in April 1788. The clue is in the tool of a bird (a pigeon, or perhaps a thin pheasant) perched atop a vase which can be seen at the head of the spines. Pearson had made his fortune in India under Clive, and spent some time (and, presumably, a lot of money) in England in the early 1770s, when he had bought fine early English literature, including old ballads from the Harleian library and at James West's sale in 1773 - these later formed part of the Roxburghe Ballads which are now at the British Library. (This tool is illustrated by de Ricci as his plate III.) Pearson returned to India in 1776 and died in Calcutta in August 1781. Gulick 2. See de Ricci, English Collectors, pp. 56-7.

Item Description: ondon- J Dodsley, 1774. Hardcover. Book Condition: VERY GOOD. First edition. An attractive two volume first edition of the letters of Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield. First edition, second state, with Vol I, P 55, L 16 reading 'qui auroit'Collated: Complete with half titles and errata slip to the rear of volume II. Frontispiece to volume I. A pleasing copy in the original binding with wide margins. Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield, was a British statesman and man of letters. After Chesterfield's death Eugenia Stanhope, the widow of his illegitimate son, published this work which comprised the thirty year correspondence between Chesterfield and his son, Philip Stanhope. The letters containdiscourseson language, geography, history, classical literature and politics. The letters served asa handbook onbecoming a gentleman in 18th century life, and it is this work whichestablished Chesterfield's literary reputation. The circumstances around the publication of the letters caused controversy at the time. Eugenia Stanhope sold the letters for publication after the death of her husband and his father left her unprovided for. The letters, having never been intended for publication originally, were controversial for their perceived immorality and frankness, as well as the scandal surrounding their publication. They were laterreprinted several times and were incredibly popular as an insight into 18th century society. Condition: In full calf bindings with contrasting spine labels. Externally, sound with rubbing and wear to extremities. Joints cracked but still reasonably firm. Front joint a little tender to volume I. Ink signature to front free-endpaper of both volumes. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright and generally clean. Occasional spotting in places, and offsetting from frontispiece to title and the reverse. Overall: VERY GOOD.

Letters written by the late Right Honourable: CHESTERFIELD, Philip Dormer

Item Description: printed for J. Dodsley, in Pall-mall, London, 1774. Full Calf. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Two quarto volumes complete, in English, Latin and French. [4],vii,[1],568; [4],606,[2, errata]pp, with half-titles, engraved frontispiece portrait (in vol. I) by J. Vitalba after William Hoare. Contemporary calf, boards framed with French fillets, spines, in five compartments, rebacked, original red morocco lettering and numbering pieces gilt laid down, later marbled end papers, all edges gilt. An excellent, wide-margined set, bindings tight and secure, some gatherings moderately foxed but generally clean and bright. Gulick 2B. Rothschild 596. Lowndes 434. Gibson's Library, p. 94. First Edition, Second State (with misprint "quia uroit," corrected to "qui auroit," vol. I, p. 55, line 16). Written almost daily beginning in 1737, Lord Chesterfield's famous letters, to his illegitimate son, conceived in Flanders when Chesterfield was ambassador at The Hague, "are full of sensible instruction, admirably expressed, more particularly in matters of good breeding . . ." (Oxford Companion to English Literature). Chesterfield's widow prepared the 395 letters for publication within a year of his death, and the work won immediate popularity. Like the 'Meditations' of Marcus Aurelius, these are a timeless collection of moral lessons drawn from a life well-lived, an elegantly written vade mecum, with instruction on behaving ethically and on the art of becoming a gentleman and man of the world. Arguably the finest collection of letters in English (and certainly among the most edifying), an epistolary classic (reprinted 27 times in the eighteenth century alone and still in print today). N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Item Description: Printed for J. Dodsley in Pall-Mall, London, 1774. Full leather. Book Condition: Very Good +. A very handsome example of the 1774 1st edition, 1st issue ("quia uroit" on pg. 55, line 16) of Chesterfield's letters, complete in 2 volumes. And including the uncommon 1787 supplement. All 3 volumes uniform quartos, bound in a full contemporary calf and very skillfully rebacked, with raised bands and lovely gilt-titling and ornamentation at the compartments. Boards lightly-bumped at corners and additional very light surface wear, with minimal cracking. The binding is firm, the pages bright and quite clean and the set overall merits a solid VG+. These 395 letters were prepapred for publication by his widow, Lady Chesterfield, within a year of his death. When Lord Chesterfield's illegitimate son turned 5, the Earl began to write a series of letters of advice and wisdom to him. These letters were never intended for publication but when Lord Chesterfield died, his son's widow (his son had died at age 36) realized that his letters to her late husband were a valuable property. Both Edward Gibbon and Horace Walpole declined an invitation to edit the letters for publication. Shortly after their refusal, Mrs. Stanhope signed a contract with James Dodsley. He agreed to pay her 1,500 guineas for the right to publish the letters and immediately advertised in London newspapers (November 1773) that they would be "speedily published"; the forthcoing book was advertised for the following February and March (1774). Angry at Chesterfield's refusal to patronize his "Dictionary", Samuel Johnson censured the Letters for "teaching the morals of a whore, and the manners of a dancing master" but even he admitted that they "might be made a very pretty book. Take out the immorality, and it should be put into the hands of every young gentleman". (Rothschild 596; Gulick 2; Aresty p. 310; not in Heltzel {which lists a 20th century reprint}).

Item Description: Printed for J. Dodsley in Pall-Mall, London, 1774. First Edition, with half-titles. First Edition, with half-titles. Published by Mrs. Eugenia Stanhope, from the Originals now in her Possession. Engraved frontispiece portrait after he painting by Hoare. 2 vols. 4to (28 x 22 cm.). First Edition of Chesterfield's Letters in Beautiful Contemporary Binding. Chesterfield's letters were full of educational insights and wisdom which the Earl felt he should impart to his illegitimate but much-loved son, Philip.They were not intended for publication, and the Earl's estate objected when Philip's widow had them published in 1774."The Letters brought more lasting fame, as well as censure, than all his political achievements.They have been greatly admired. . The series of 448 letters to his son began when the boy was five and continued until within four weeks of his death in 1768 at the age of thirty-six.In one sense they were compensation for the university education Philip did not receive and were intended to provide the essential foundation for a career in politics or diplomacy.At their peak, from 1748 to 1752, the long and earnest homilies were landing on Philip's table at the rate of one a fortnight" (ODNB).The Letters were met with mixed reviews, but great popularity, 26 editions were done by 1800. "Even with a conservative estimate of print runs, complete editions easily exceeded 10,000 copies, making Letters to His Son one of the most popular publications of the late Eighteenth Century" (Mayo, Papers of BSA Vol 99:1). Rothschild 596 Full contemporary polished tree calf, ornately gilt spines with central floral and basket devices in each panel, spines with red and green leather labels lettered in gilt.
