John Forster (1812-76) wrote for and edited periodicals before he became famous with the printing of this biography, a work he rewrote 12 times before finally submitting it for publication. As a result of his success with this book, Forster was named secretary to the commissioners of lunacy, a position more attractive than it might seem to be, as it commanded a salary sufficient to allow him to give up editing and devote the rest of his life to literature according to his own interests.

Title pages with ink ownership inscription of Henry Moore. Spine leather rather crackled, extremities a bit rubbed, boards with some staining and patches of insect activity, but the bindings entirely sound and still appealing. Second volume with intermittent foxing (never offensive), both volumes with occasional minor stains, but a very good and attractive set, generally quite clean and fresh internally.

Description:
Edinburgh: Printed for Peter Hill, et al., 1807. FIRST EDITION. 197 x 114 mm. (7 3/4 x 4 1/2"). 2 p.l., [v]-viii, 244 pp. FIRST EDITION. PUBLISHER'S ORIGINAL BLUE BOARDS, paper label on spine, edges untrimmed. In a felt-lined, morocco-backed folding box. Four engraved plates (three views and a city plan). Front free endpaper inscribed, "Edin. 27th April 1807 / Agnes Cockburn / in memory / of the author." Donovan & Murdoch 270. Boards a little soiled, front joint cracked (rear joint starting at tail), extremities with the expected considerable wear, spine label chipped (with a fourth of the letters gone), but the boards still attached, and the extremely insubstantial publisher's binding still appealing because of its original materials. Title page with a bit of offsetting from frontispiece, isolated minor foxing in text, other trivial imperfections, but an excellent copy internally, the untrimmed leaves bright, fresh, and clean, with all of their ample margins intact. This is an invaluable early… Read more
