Item #30623

First edition of Fielding's last book. Two editions appeared in 1755, with the same title pages: one (this) edition was clearly an edited text; the other version was unedited, and set from the manuscript. The unedited text was suppressed and did not reappear until the next November, after an earthquake in Portugal reawakened interest in Fielding's book.
