The result, though less ambitious than intended, provides a detailed account of the county, its flora, fauna, geology, and culture, elegantly illustrated with large copper plates.
A Father’s Legacy to his Daughters … the second Edition.
‘Second edition’ of Gregory’s Legacy to his Daughters, published immediately after the first. Written following the death of the author’s wife in 1761, the text was not intended for publication, rather to provide posthumous guidance for his two daughters, whom he brought up ‘in a philosophical simplicity’ (ODNB) endorsed by his friend Elizabeth Montagu. The year following his death in 1773, however, it was published by his son James with considerable success, with numerous editions, translations, and piracies printed in quick succession.
