CommentsBurke's famous polemic on the French Revolution, here in its second impression - as distinguished by Todd C, plate 6 - with the “M“ in the date of the imprint on the title-page slightly to the right rather than directly below (as in the first impression) the “D” in Dodsley. The cancels, etc., otherwise correspond to those called for by Todd for the first edition. Modern, though not seriously offensive, bookplate on the front paste-down.
