Dublin: Thomas Ewing, 1772. This famous anonymous attack on King George III was first published 1769-1772 as a series of letters in "The Public Advertiser," whose publisher was brought up on charges of seditious libel. The author is still unknown. This is a Good copy of what Quercus supposes to be the First Irish Edition, which has a note that it contains material not found in the English version. This is Volume One ONLY. Clean text; 241 pages, very bright and clear. Full leather binding; five raised bands and a red label on the spine. Rubbed at the margins, and the front board, while present, has detached. Its paste-down bears an interesting contemporary armorial bookplate, that of "Mr. Neil Ferguson, Advocate." Please note the condition issues. Although this is an attractive book, Quercus must offer it as a Binding Copy, in need of repair or restoration. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. First Thus..
