Dublin: P. Wogan, 1805. Hardcover. Scarce Edition. This is a later issue of Elizabeth Hervey's interesting novel of 1796 on the politics of Ireland, and it displays her sympathy for the United Ireland cause. Hervey (1748-1820) wrote at a time when it was quite unusual for a woman to write on political issues. Bound in contemporary full brown leather with red title label and brown volume number label to spine. The binding is mottled, with bumping and boards of volume 2 starting to split from spine. The binding is still solid, however, and the text blocks are tight. Browning and some foxing to the interior pages otherwise very good. Bookplate affixed to front pastedown to volume 1 and ink ownership signature on title pages of both volumes. Volume 1: 287 pages; Volume 2: 284 pages. LIT/012910 This set may require an extra shipping fee. Very Good.
