Two issues of Daniel Isaac Eaton’s weekly journal, which ran for a period of several months over two years. No. 43, which contains an index as pp. 7-8, was the last issue, and consists entirely of verse praising the French Revolution and apparently mocking with irony the British constitution.

Rare, full runs extremely so, ESTC noting the BL and University of California only.

Memoires de Gaudence de Luques, prisonnier de l’Inquisition … Première [– quatrième] partie.

Second edition of this much expanded and altered translation of Berington’s celebrated utopian novel, Memoirs of Sigr Gaudentio di Lucca (1737). The Memoirs enjoyed immense popularity, undergoing at least twelve eighteenth-century editions in English and contemporary translations into French, German and Dutch. With the author thought to be George Berkeley, the great Christian idealist, ‘it attained to a rank and dignity comparable to that of the Republic of Plato, the Utopia of Sir Thomas More, and the New Atlantis of Lord Bacon’ (Lee M. Ellison, ‘Gaudentio Di Lucca: a Forgotten Utopia’, PMLA, L [1935], 494-509).
