HAZLITT, William. POLITICAL ESSAYS, with Sketches of Public Characters. £ 250.00

London. William Hone. 1819. pp. xxxvi, 439. 8vo. Early cloth with worn spine label. Partly unopened. Keynes 49. 'With his collected Political Essays Hazlitt ended his activities as controversial journalist. He drew upon his writings during the years 1813 - 18 and added at the end some of his "characters" of statemen first printed in the Eloquence of the British Senate, 1807, and some extracts from his Reply to Malthus, 1807. The book was entirely in fine Radical hands, being dedicated to John Hunt, printed by John M'Creery, and published by William Hone......Hazlitt's Preface is characteristically fierce, and the whole book has a strong political flavour.'
