Author: HERVEY (JAMES):
Title: A Collection of Letters, by the late Reverend James Hervey.
Description: Glasgow: Printed by J. and M. Robertson, 1792. 12mo (in 6s), pp. 604, with pp. 279 - 302 misnumbered as 179 - 202, contemporary sheepskin, gilt spine, red morocco label; upper front joint slightly cracked, top and base of spine chipped, corners worn, binding a little dried and rubbed. The anonymous editor observes in the Preface, that Hervey "seemed to make it almost an invariable rule, not to write a letter on any occasion, without at least some pious sentence in it..."; the pious sentences are balance by the more ordinary aspirations of writers, e. g., is a projected book likely to be published.
