Descripción

Learned ecclesiastic (1721-1807), who opposed Hume and edited Clarendon. One page, quarto. Good, though on discoloured paper and heavily creased with a few small holes (not affecting text) caused by wear. Second leaf of bifoliate, damaged, discoloured and with some loss through breaking of wafer; bears address ('To / Major General Rooke | Member of Parliament | Woodstock | Oxfordshire') and postmark 'WINDSOR'. As Douglas was travelling to Salisbury, Rooke's covering letter did not arrive with 'Dr. Mavor's Present' (William Fordyce Mavor, 1758-1837, cleric and educationalist; the present may be the second edition of his 'Universal stenography', published in 1792). 'I had read the Performance soon after it appeared, & liked it much, both as to the Matter, & the Stile. That you have a Neighbour of such distinguished Abilities, cannot but be a valuable Acquisition to your circle of Acquaintances at Woodstock.' Signed 'J. Sarum'. N° de ref. de la librería 4535
