Observations on the Greek and Roman Classics: In a Series of Letters to a Young Nobleman; Together with: 'Remarks on the Italian Language and Writers in a Letter from Sir Joseph Barrett to an English Gentleman. . '
London, Dan Browne et al. 1753. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. 266, 24. 12mo. Our copy has been recently re-backed, with the original spine label laid down. Bookplate of famous bibliophone A. Edward Newton attached to inside front board. The hinges are strong. Boards show some wear to edges. Contents clean and tight: a good copy. The identity of the author is in dispute. The Gentleman's Magazine of 1848 suggests it might have been Tobias Smollett. Other suggest it was 'Sir' John Hill (1716-1775), an English author and botanist, who edited the 'British Magazine' from 1746-1750, and for two years (1751-1753) wrote a daily letter, 'The Inspector' for the London Advertiser and 'Literary Gazette' (see Wikipedia). There is also an anonymous three page Preface to this book, which a pencilled note on the front free endpaper which suggests the Preface 'is undoubtedly by Samuel Johnson'. However, a typed card laid-in loose contradicts this assertion. .
