Headcap of vol. 2 damaged, front joints of each show some wear. A posthumous collection of the writings of Sir John Harington (1561-1612) compiled and published here by one of his descendants, the Rev. Henry Harington (1727-1816). “[Harignton] wrote easily, and certainly was not a hero to himself. The most intimate facts of his domestic life afforded him materials for an epigram, and his frankness was entire. Hence he gives a living picture of life and society in his times, and abounds in incidental stories which throw great light upon many prominent persons".
