TRAPP, Joseph (1679--1747)
The character and principles of the present set of Whigs.
[London?]: [1711?].
48 p. ; 15.3 cm. (8º)

Anonymous. By Joseph Trapp. The edition cannot be securely identifed; two editions were published by John Morphew in London and one by E. Lloyd in Dublin in 1711, with a third London edition in 1712 (but with different pagination). First edition: ESTC t27322; Goldsmiths' 4845.

Copy Notes Imperfect; wanting the title-page. Ink scribblings as of writing practice in the margins of pp. 3, 38, 40 and 48. Bound (10) in a collection of eleven political tracts by or associated with Defoe, dated between 1710 and 1717. Part of a uniformly bound 48-volume set of works by or attributed to Defoe which on the evidence of endleaves variously watermarked '1814', '1808', etc. was presumably assembled around 1810--15.

Binding C19th half calf, marbled-paper boards, gilt-tooled spine direct-lettered in gilt 'Defoe's Works' and 'Miscellanies'. Cased (18.8 cm) to match the set.

Reference Number 824
