London: Macmillan and Co., 1892. 111 pp. 5 1/2 x 7 1/4"; Third Edition; Green cloth over boards with gilt lettering and designs on spine and cover, illustrated frontispiece with tissue guard intact, all edges gilt, some glue bubbling to front cover but very subtle, black and white illustrations throughout, no appreciable wear or rubbing, a beautiful copy in near fine condition.

Joseph Addison and Richard Steele were the co-founders of The Spectator Magazine (1711-1712). The character they created, Sir Roger de Coverley, was an English squire during the reign of Queen Anne, having the values of an old country gentleman, lovable but also rather ridiculous.
