Description: Engraved title page, and illustrated with a series of 12 fine portraits, all engraved by Edward Bocquet from Original Paintings. 364pp. 4to, contemporary gilt-stamped polished calf, marbled edges and endpapers (leather is well-rubbed; joints repaired; scattered foxing). London: Sherwood, Neely & Jones, 1812. Very good.

Comments: The letters of "Junius," originally appearing in the "Public Advertiser" from November of 1768 to January of 1772, represent one of the great mysteries of English literature. No author ever claimed credit for these letters, though they were ascribed to every prominent Whig of the period... Sir Philip Francis (1740-1818), who was a clerk in the War Office when the "Junius" letters were written, is generally considered to be the mystery writer, though he denied this association to the end of his life.

The book was in my mailbox when I got home last night. Wonderful condition for a 40-year-old book. Nice condition in any case. I am very pleased. Thank you. A bit of trivia: You are only the second seller in six years not to tape the pull strip so it canít be used! Congratulations. Take care, and many, many thanks. I was really looking forward to this one, and you didnít disappoint. - G.W.
