AN UNRECOGNISED ENGLISH PRINTING CHESTERFIELD, Philip Dormer Stanhope, Earl of.
Lettres ecrites par le tres-honorable … Comte de Chesterfield, a son Fils, Philippe Stanhope … avec plusieurs autres Pieces sur divers Sujets. Publiées par Madame Eugenie Stanhope, d’après l’Original en sa Possession. En cinq Volumes …
First edition in French of Chesterfield’s famous Letters to his Son (1774). Although not recognized as such by Gulick (and not listed in ESTC), this is almost certainly an English production; press figures appear throughout all five volumes, the typography and disposition is generally English in feel, and there are scattered grammatical and typographical errors perhaps unlikely from a native French printer, e.g. ‘Fin du cinquieme et dernier volume’.
