Viii, 216 & 238 & 199,  pages, newly rebound in cloth, ex-library with usual library markings, text very good. 1st edition. Volume 33 only. From the preface "Such was the importance of the subjects to be treated in the History of 1791, that we could not in conscience run them over lightly, nor confuse them by an affected brevity. The parliament of this year was incessantly occupied by business of the utmost consequence, not only to the individual interests of Great Britain, but to the general balance of power, as well in Europe as the East Indies, both which demanded not a little introductory explanation. We have also taken more than common pains to draw, from a minute comparison of different authorities, a more faithful representation, than any before given, of the dispute between Mr. Fox and Mr Burke, because it has been productive of a powerful influence on our domestic affairs, and because we consider it less as a breach between two friends, than as a political schism, involving public principles of the first magnitude. But above all, that great constitutional question, the abatement or non-abatement of Impreachments on dissolution of parliament, seemed to require the minutest investigation. . . But we had also a heavy arrear in the affairs of the Netherlands, and the North and North-East of Europe. We omitted the whole of this subject in our last Volume, partly from necessity and partly from choice; for we view the progressive pacification of all the belligerent powers, during the campaigns of 1790 and 1791, as one connected train of events; to which, notwithstanding many subsequent battles of extraordinary carnage, the first opening was made by the death of the emperor Joseph, in the beginning of the former year. " The Appendix to the Chronicle includes: Successes of the British Arms in the East Indies; Account of the capture of Cannanore and Turuckabad, with several forts on the Malabar coast; Account of the capture of Bangalore; Extracts of letters, accounts relative to the settlements in New South Wales. State Papers includes Proclamation for the discovery of the publishers of a certain seditious paper, circulated on the 11th of July in the town of Birmingham. Useful Projects include Process of converting smoke arising from steam engines, &c into tar. Antiquities include Singular letter from Henry VIII to a Mrs. Coward, of Southampton. Miscellaneous essays includes Account of the erection of the Edystone lighthouses. Poetry includes Monody on Dick, an academical cat. Account of Books for 1791 includes: The Statistical Account of Scotland, by Sir John Sinclair. N° de réf. du libraire 23570
