London: A. Millar, J. & R. Tonson, W. Strahan, P. Davey and B. Law, 1760. Seventh Edition. Hardcover. 384 pages - (24 ind.) First published in 1747, the book was reprinted within its first year of publication - 20 editions in the 18th century followed. It was not uncommon for a female scribe to keep her identity hidden, but by using the title "A LADY", erroneous claims of authorship flourished. Unfortunately for Glasse, her financial situation was never secure and she filed for bankruptcy and even spent some time in debtors prison. [OXFORD 77], [BITING 189]. Expertly rebacked, portions of the original backstrip preserved. Interior crisp. Orig. calf, rebacked. Very good. Item #1530
