Contemporary full brown leather bindings, worn, labels lacking on 4, a number of boards weak. Internally, a very good set. Early ownership signatures and bookplates. "The New Foundling Hospital for Wit is one of the great, popular, yet overlooked collections of British satire. The editors knew how to make audiences crave more in the way of the scandalous, salacious and outrageous. It was published by the radical bookseller John Almon and its most notorious contributor, John Wilkes, provided poetry and prose as well as gathered contributions from recently deceased Hell-Fire friends like Charles Churchill, Robert Lloyd and Thomas Potter. Members of the theatre such as David Garrick, George Colman and Bonnell Thornton make cameos as living contributors to The New Foundling Hospital for Wit. Its importance lies in its consolidation of political commentary as satirical expression." [D.W. Nichol, editor of the 2006 critical facsimile edition of the 1768 printing.].
