Considerations Upon our Affairs
[George Lyttleton]. Considerations Upon the present State of our Affairs at Home and Abroad. In a Letter to a Member of Parliament from a Friend in the Country. London: T. Cooper, 1739. First edition (?). Small quarto (8.5 x 5.375 inches; 215 x 135 mm.). [2, title-leaf (verso blank)], 16, 15-65, [2, Postscript], [1, blank] pages; erratum at the end of the postscript, correcting the date in on page 30, line 10. Original side-stitched binding, without wrappers; text completely untrimmed. Binding thread split but still holding together; page edges curled with some wear and creased corners; first and last few leaves dust-soiled. Very good. We are unclear if this is a first edition or a variant of the second edition; ESTC T79407 and OCLC number 22354938 was published the same year but with only 39 pages; this closely matches the second edition's pagination after corrections. ESTC T31569; Kress 4443; Sabin 42889; NCBEL Volume II, p. 556. (#10328).
