About This Item

1710. 1st Edition . No Binding. Very Good. Found at Doway, after the taking of that town. Translated from the French Copy. Printed at Cologne by Peter Marteau. Small 8vo. 47 pages. Disbound. With half title. London, Printed in the Year 1710. Moore 189. Note: Variously attributed to Pierre Des Maiseaux, Daniel Defoe, and Arthur Maynwaring. For authorship controversy see Moore 189 and Snyder in Literatur als Kritik des Lebens (Heidelberg, 1975) p.123. Moore suggests that Des Maiseaux was only responsible for the French translation, but this undoubtedly appeared first - it is possible that he was the author. The Cologne imprint of that edition, however, is probably false. French version: Lettre dun gentilhomme de la cour de St. Germain, . . . 1710, with the (false?) imprint A Cologne, chez Pierre Marteau, probably in fact a translation from the English. Some soiling and darkening of paper, o/w Very Nice
