Comments¶ An collection of over 70 letters, compiled and edited by Rebecca Warner of Bath, who clearly had a scholarly interest in the literature of the 18th century. She assembled correspondence of John Gay, Alexander Pope, Samuel Johnson, Elizabeth Montague, William Gilpin, et al., and introduced each with "Biographical Illustrations." Warner was the author of one novel, Herbert-Lodge (1808) and another similar collection, Epistolary Curiosities (1818).
