1799 Junius. Stat Nominus Umbra. [Letters of Junius]
What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Leather Binding
An interesting collection of private and openly published letters that criticised the Hanoverian government under King George III.
Written anonymously by an individual who referred to himself only as 'Junius'. Some have claimed Junius to be British politician and pamphleteer, Philip Francis, though his identity has never been officially confirmed.
With an engraved title page to each volume - providing the date 1797 - and a further twenty one plates of engraved portraits. Collated, complete.
ESTC reference number T11034.
With the bookplate of Egerton Parker to each volume, and a further armorial bookplate to each volume.
In half calf bindings, with marbled paper covered boards. Significant rubbing to back strips, with discolouration to board perimeters. Volume I joints starting, with boards holding firm. Bookplates to front pastedowns and free endpapers. Internally, firmly bound. Areas of significant spotting throughout, most concentrated to page and plate perimeters.
