The book was first issued by Richardson in 1740, shortly before the publication of his first novel Pamela. The above copy is the third edition, second issue; the Preface, the Life, and the Reflections are all the work of Samuel Richardson. This issue is probably the last edition printed by Richardson as he died in 1761. Early copies in such excellent condition are rare.
