The Sir Roger de Coverly Papers

£29.99

Product description

Sir Roger de Coverley was a character in The Spectator (1711). He was an English squire of Queen Anne's reign, who exemplified the values of an old country gentleman, and was portrayed as lovable but somewhat ridiculous, making his Tory politics seem harmless but silly. The Spectator was a daily publication founded by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele in England after they met at Charterhouse School; it lasted from 1711 to 1712. Decorative green cover has some ink marks, bumping to corners and spine. Binding satisfactory but weak in a few places, particularly in the centre. Foxing to end pages but text bright and clear.
