10 Addison, Joseph; Richard Steele; Henry Morley (Intro) The Spectator (Three Volumes, Complete): A New Edition, Reproducing the Original Text, Both as First Issued and as Corrected by its Authors
London George Routledge & Sons 1891 New Revised Edition. First Printing Leather Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Bound in half brown morocco over marbled boards by John Bumpus of Oxford Street; spines in six compartments separated by raised bands, gilt lettering in two compartments, gilt borders in remainder, gilt borders on covers, t.e.g., marbled, endpapers. These three volumes include all 632 issues of The Spectator. They also include Translations of the Mottos, Some Advertisements from the Original Issues of The Spectator, and a detailed Index. The Spectator was a daily publication founded by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele in England, lasting from 1711 to 1712. Each "paper", or "number", was approximately 2,500 words long, and the original run consisted of 555 numbers, beginning on 1 March 1711. The publication was revived briefly in 1714. Through characters it developed, The Spectator commented on the habits, foibles, and social faux pas of all classes of Englishmen. The Spectator was designed "to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality". Addison and Steele hoped that it would be said they have "brought philosophy out of closets and libraries, schools, and colleges, to dwell in clubs and assemblies, at tea-tables and coffee-houses". They recommend that readers of the paper consider it "as a part of the tea-equipage" and set aside time to read it each morning. Despite a modest daily circulation of approximately 3,000 copies, The Spectator was widely read; Joseph Addison estimated that each number was read by 60,000 Londoners, about a tenth of the capital's population at the time. Most readers were not themselves subscribers but patrons of one of the subscribing coffeehouses. "The Spectator" also had many readers in the American colonies, James Madison in particular. The Spectator is seen as instrumental in the formation of the public sphere in 18th century England. Joseph Addison (1672-1719) was an English essayist, poet, playwright, and politician. He was the eldest son of The Reverend Lancelot Addison. His name is usually remembered alongside that of his long-standing friend, Richard Steele, with whom he founded The Spectator magazine. Sir Richard Steele (1672-1729) was an Irish writer and politician, remembered as co-founder, with his friend Joseph Addison, of the magazine The Spectator. Steele became a Whig Member of Parliament in 1713, for Stockbridge.[3] He was soon expelled for issuing a pamphlet in favor of the Hanoverian succession. When George I of Great Britain came to the throne in the following year, Steele was knighted and given responsibility for the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London. He returned to parliament in 1715, for Boroughbridge.. All three volumes are in excellent condition, unmarked, tight, square, and clean. An extremely handsome set. NEAR FINE. . 8vo 8" - 9" tall. 687; 732; 732 pp

De Coverley Papers, Addison, Joseph; Samuel Thurber (ed)
11 Addison, Joseph; Samuel Thurber (ed) De Coverley Papers
Boston Allyn and Bacon 1892 First Edition. First Edition Hard Cover Good with no dust jacket 
Publisher's full paper-covered boards, lettering on spine and cover. In the second number of Addison and Steele’s SPECTATOR papers eighteenth-century readers were introduced to the members of “The Club.” Heading the list of those characters who, among them, were intended to represent the entire range of public opinion and enlightened bias for the London of 1711 was “a gentleman of Worcestershire, of ancient descent, a baronet, his name Sir Roger de Coverley.” Sir Roger was initially conceived of as an aging Restoration rake. In the old days he. . . was what you call a fine gentleman, had often supped with my Lord Rochester and Sir George Etherege, fought a duel upon first coming to town, and kicked Bully Dawson in a public coffeehouse for calling him “youngster.” By the time of THE SPECTATOR, however, he had been mellowed by years of unrequited love for a “perverse beautiful widow of the next county to him,” and had become that quaint and lovable representative of the Tory landowning class, an amiable but rather ineffectual anachronism who was to stand as the most popular and the best remembered of the many characters that appeared in the 555 numbers of the original SPECTATOR. . Spine sunned, covers solile, former owners' names on fep, else near fine. GOOD. . The Academy Series of English Classics Series. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. 82, 13-adverts pp
