A New Edition, to which is prefixed a Geographical Index. In Two Volumes. Illustrated with Engravings, and a Map of Ancient Greece. London : Printed for T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies in the Strand, 1798. 4to, Pp (4), [i] - lxii, (2), [1] - 436, (4), + engraved frontispiece (portrait of Philip Earl of Hardwicke), large folding cloth-backed map of Greece, and 7 engraved plates.

Bound in exquisite full tree calf with gilt décor and lettering on spine, gilt dentelles and edges to boards, and black and wine coloured morocco labels on spine. "The Authors of these Letters were a Society of Friends, who were contemporaries at the University of Cambridge, about the years 1739 and 1740; all their names (except that of the Writer of this Preface) were an ornament to the place. The world was unfortunately deprived of the talents, virtues, and services of one of them, when they were mostwanted, both by his own Profession and by the Public: not above two or thr ee of the set are now living ; they lament the loss of their colleagues, and cultivate the remembrance of their former friendly connection. The learned, into whose hands these Letters may fall, will best judge how correctly the manners of antiquity are kept up, and how truly the history of those times is represented in them." Binding of volume I repaired, light wear to edges, lacking the engraved frontispiece for Vol.II (portrait of Charles Yorke), some foxing to plates and map, slight scattered foxing elsewhere, marginal tear to leaf 413/414 of Vol. 1.
