WILKES, WETENHALL,
A Letter of Genteel and Moral Advice
0. 1766. to a Young Lady: being a System of RULES and INFORMATIONS; digested into a new and familiar Method to qualify the FAIR SEX to be useful, and happy in every Scene of Life. The EIGHTH EDITION, carefully Revised, Corrected, and Enlarged by the AUTHOR. London, Printed for L.Hawes, C.Clarke, and R.Collins in Pater-Noster Row, 1766; [viii], 223pp. with engraved frontisp. (by Isaac Taylor); contemp. calf, raised bands with simple gilt rule and black leather lettering-piece, simple gilt rule to boards; top strip cut from half-title, about 40 pages lightly stained in the middle from flowers being pressed there - not preventing legibility, small hole in p.45/46 with loss of two letters. Scarce. The choice of this small book to press flowers in suggests it may have been the only book permitted in a young owner's pocket or bag on some afternoon's excursion centuries ago - or else that the content of the book was felt by her to be far heavier than its physical weight. Judging from its several editions Wilkes' views on female education and the role of women were widely circulated, but copies of his book are rare.
