Quarto. Contemporary half calf, smooth spine with gilt bands, red morocco label, marbled sides, pale blue endpapers, sprinkled edges. Rubbed, one or two minor spots, but an excellent well-margined copy. First Edition. The politician and publicist George Rose (1744–1818) was one of Pitt's keenest supporters. Here he uses the papers of the earls of Marchmont to attack Fox's History of the Early Part of the Reign of James II, 1808, in which Fox had naturally drawn whiggish conclusions about the dangers of the power of the crown. Rose's polemic drew a reply by Sydney Smith in the Edinburgh Review. N° de ref. de la librería
