Title: Moral and Political Dialogues: Being the Substance of several Conversations between Divers Eminent Persons of the Present Age; Digested by the Parties themselves, and Now first published from the original MSS with Critical and Explanatory Notes By the Editor.
Description: London, Printed for A. Millar..., 1759. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. [ii], xii, 304, pp. 305 - 311 misnumbering 283 - 289 [290 = 312 blank], contemporary calf; contemporary identification of Hurd as author on title-page; binding worn and rubbed, rear joint holding by one cord. The misnumbered pages at the end contain an appendix, in which Hurd attacks David Hume's recently-published Tudor section of his History of England . Writing to William Mason shortly after the work was published, Hurd commented, "Whatever fate attends the Dialogues, I have so much of the author in me as to be perfectly satisfied with them myself. If there be a grain of humour in them, it depends solely on my pretending, not seriously intending to pass them on the courteous reader for originals." Eddy 21.
