2 Fitz-Adam, Adam (pseud. of Edward Moore); George, Baron Lyttelton; Philip, Earl of Chesterfield; Horace Walpole, Earl of Oxford The World, a New Edition (Volume 2, only)
London J. Dodsley 1789 New Edition. First Printing Leather Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
Original full calf, spine in six compartments, gilt lettering on red and black labels in two compartments, gilt tooling in remainder. This volume is a compilation of the issues of the weekly periodical, The World, published during 1754, its second year of publication (from No. 53, published on January 3, 1754 to No. 104, published on December 26, 1754). Edward Moore (1712-1757), English dramatist and miscellaneous writer, was the son of a dissenting minister. He was the author of "Fables of the Female Sex" (1744), "The Trial of Selim the Persian" (1748), "The Foundling" (1748) and "Gil Blas" (1751). He wrote the domestic tragedy of "The Gamester," originally produced in 1753 with Garrick in the leading character of Beverley the gambler. It is upon "The Gamester" that Moore's literary reputation rests; the play was much-produced in England and the United States in the century after Moore's death. The oft-quoted phrase "rich beyond the dreams of avarice" is spoken by Mrs. Beverley in the play's second act. As a poet he produced clever imitations of John Gay and Thomas Gray, and with the assistance of George, 1st Lord Lyttelton, Lord Chesterfield and Horace Walpole, conducted "The World" (1753–1757), a weekly periodical on the model of the Rambler. Moore collected his poems under the title of Poems, Fables and Plays in 1756. He died in Lambeth on 1 March 1757. His Dramatic Works were published in 1788.. Minor crease on front board, corners bumped, hinges strong, former owner's signature on fep, otherwise unmarked, unread, tight, square and clean. VERY GOOD. . 12mo 7" - 7˝" tall. 323, (13-Index) pp

8 Steele, Richard; Joseph Addison; Jonathan Swift; et al. The Lucubrations of Isaac Bickerstaff, Esq. [The Tatler] (Four Volumes, Complete)
London H. Lintot, T. Longman, J. and P. Knapton, et al. 1737 -. 1 Leather Good with No dust jacket as issued 
Full tree calf, spines in six compartments separated by raised bands, gilt lettering on burgundy labels in two compartments, elaborate gilt tooling in remainder, gilt double borders on covers. "The Tatler" was founded in 1709 by Richard Steele (who used the nom de plume "Isaac Bickerstaff, Esquire"). Steele's conceit was to publish the news and gossip heard in various London coffeehouses, and, so he declared in the opening paragraph, to leave the subject of politics to the newspapers, while presenting Whiggish views and correcting middle-class manners, while instructing "these Gentlemen, for the most part being Persons of strong Zeal, and weak Intellects...what to think." To assure complete coverage of local gossip, he pretended to place a reporter in each of the city's four most popular coffeehouses, and the text of each issue was subdivided according to the names of these four: accounts of manners and mores were datelined from White's; literary notes from Will's; notes of antiquarian interest were dated from the Grecian Coffee House; and news items from St. James's Coffee House.The journal was originally published three times a week, and Steele eventually brought in contributions from his literary friends Jonathan Swift and Joseph Addison, though both of them pretended to be writing as Isaac Bickerstaff and authorship was revealed only when the papers were collected in a bound volume. The original Tatler was published for only two years, from 12 April 1709 to 2 January 1711. A collected edition was first published in 1710–11, with the title "The Lucubrations of Isaac Bickerstaff, Esq." This is a later edition (1737) which includes all 271 issues of "The Tatler." . Covers moderately rubbed, former owner's name (Anne Pigott) in elegant contemporary hand on each title page, former owner's ex libris (Marshall Sisson) on each fep, ex libris of W. Gurney on fep in two volumes; otherwise unmarked, tight and square. GOOD. . 12mo 7" - 7˝" tall 
Price: 500.00 USD
