Junius was the pseudonym of the author of a series of letters that appeared in the “Public Advertiser” from 1769-1771. Characterized by a tone of bitter scorn and liberal invective, these letters attacked various Tory politicians, as well as the person of Geroge III. The first authorized edition in book form appeared in 1772, this being the second edition. No name, no book-plate, no internal markings, etc. A nice, clean set, internally fresh, with only a hint of rubbing at extremities.. Fine set.
