About this Item

First edition and sole Strawberry Hill edition, limited to 200 copies. Cherbury ? diplomat, philosopher, traveller, and occasional poet (1583?1648) ? left this account of his life unpublished at his death. Horace Walpole discovered it among his papers and with the permission of his heirs published it for the first time at his Strawberry Hill Press. 4to (22.5 cm; 9"). [5] ff., 171, [1] pp., fold. table, fold. port. Hazen, Strawberry Hill Press, 11; ESTC N33713. 19th-century full brown calf, modestly tooled, rebacked, offsetting from binding to first and last leaves; gilt-tooled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Some browning and embrittlement of paper with leaves of the preliminaries loosening; some margins chipped with small loss of paper, and tears from margins of several leaves including portrait and folding table (the latter repaired, from rear, with archival tissue). A hurt copy priced for the busted bibliophile yet ready, with faults noted, to give much pleasure. Bookseller Inventory # 33450
