Edward Wortley Montagu - 1713-1776 - The Man in the Iron Wig

£13.99

Product description

Good condition, just the odd stains and creases here and there. The pages are clean and readable.
He was the son of the diplomat and Member of Parliament Edward Wortley Montagu and the writer and traveller Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, whose talent and eccentricity he seems to have inherited. In 1716, he was taken by his parents to Constantinople, and at Pera in March 1716-17 was inoculated for smallpox, the first native of the United Kingdom to undergo this medical procedure.
