Letters to the Right Honourable Lord Mansfield.

First edition, the octavo issue, of Stuart’s attack on Lord Mansfield. A bitter dispute lasting begun in 1761 over the inheritance of the extinct duchy of Douglas, the Douglas Cause was appealed in the House of Lords in 1769, where the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Mansfield, disparaged Stuart’s integrity as a lawyer. ‘Stuart revenged himself on Lord Mansfield with a savage, privately distributed polemic, Letters to Lord Mansfield (1773), which alleged Mansfield’s bias towards the Douglas claim. The Letters was widely admired, although Samuel Johnson compared it to “the wailings of a dog that had been licked”’. (ODNB).
