Title: The Works of Soame Jenyns, Esq. In Four Volumes. Including Several Pieces never before published. To which are prefixed, Short Sketches of the History of the Author's Family, and also of his life; By Charles Nalson Cole, Esq.
Description: London: Printed for T. Cadell..., 1790. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION. 4 volumes. 8vo, pp. [iv], lxvi, 224; [iv], 304; [iv], 299 [300 blank]; [iv], 290, engraved portrait of Jenyns as frontispiece in volume 1, volumes not uniformly bound, with volume 1 bound in early 19th century half sheepskin, marbled boards, morocco label, with volumes 2, 3, and 4 very handsomely bound in contemporary tree calf, spines richly gilt, red and green morocco labels, and with the bookplate of the Earl of Camden in volumes 2 - 4. A made-up set. Jenyns (1704 - 1787) has never recovered from Johnson's dismissive, but inaccurate, review of his Free Enquiry into the Nature and Origin of Evil (1757). This edition reprints all his major works and most of his minor ones as well.
