BURKE, Edmund. Two Letters Addressed To A Member Of Parliament, On The Proposals For Peace With The Regicide Directory Of France.
London: Printed For F. And C. Rivington, 1796. First authorized edition, second impression, second issue. (Seventh edition). Tall 8vo., recently calf spine, marble boards, raised bands, leather spine label, (2), (1)-188pp. Bound without the halftitle and lacking the four page insert at p.156*. Signature on titlepage otherwise a fine copy.

The printing history of this title is quite complicated as outlined by Todd. This copy is lacking the four page insert as is usual; Todd states "the four leaf-insert belatedly provided to complete the text and a necessary feature of an 'ideal copy,' though rarely included in the first nine 'editions.' Although this copy is lacking the halftitle which would provide a statement of "edition," it contains the points common to Todd's 'g' and 'h' issues, and as the press figures do not correspond to 'g' we assume that this is Todd's issue "h."
