New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, Publishers, 1857. Phillip Dormer Stanhope (1694-1773), Fourth Earl of Chesterfield, was a famed orator in the House of Commons; his tenure as a Viceroy of Ireland was a remarkably enlightened one. Quercus is unclear that Chesterfield actually wrote this guide; perhaps it was just a good marketing decision by the publisher (Chesterfield did write an advice guide for his son; perhaps that is the source for this book). This is a Very Good copy of the First American Edition; there were other editions in the 1860s and 1880s. Stiff cardboard binding with a cloth spine. The front cover pictures a woman sitting in her parlor at her writing desk; the rear cover is advertising. Mostly a clean text; there are some penciled notes in the textblock, and more on the endpapers, which are also publisher adverts. 67 pages, with 15 pages of publisher adverts in the rear. The covers are work and rubbed, but the charming front cover illustration is still there, along with the original price of thirty-five cents. Size: 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall. First American Edition.. Pictorial Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.
