Henry Fielding: The Jacobite's Journal and Related Writings (1st edition)

£24.99

Product description

Although well known for his fiction and even his plays, it is less commonly known that most of Fielding's work was in journalism and political pamphleteering. This book brings together a huge collection of this work, including the texts of two rare political pamphlets. It is a scholarly volume, the material rationalised according to modern bibliographical standards, and provides full explanatory annotation appropriate to the highly topical nature of the writing.

Henry Fielding (1707-1754) was an English novelist and dramatist known for his earthy humour and satire, and as the author of the comic novel "Tom Jones". He also holds a place in the history of law enforcement, having used his authority as a magistrate to found the Bow Street Runners, which some have called London's first police force.

Our book is in good condition, with a rather worn dust jacket (unclipped) which is stained, grubby, and torn - rather more at the top than the bottom, but intact. The book itself, bound in dark charcoal cloth with gilt title etc on the spine, shows no signs of wear, age or use externally, apart from one noticeable stain on the fore-edge, another, less obvious, on the top edge, and a dirty bottom corner, of the textblock. Inside, the binding is firm with no loose pages; all pages clean and bright; no foxing.
