PETER'S LETTERS TO HIS KINFOLK
by (Morris, Peter)
Third edition on title pages. Peter Morris is the pseudonym of John Gilbert Lockhart (1794-1854) contributor to Blackwell's Magazine, author and editor of numerous other works, and the son-in-law of Sir Walter Scott. He is best remembered as Scott's biographer. Books are a bit worn at the extremities, short splits in the front joints of volumes one and three, earlier bookseller's description of a similar book pasted on first blank which states "comprises interesting sketches of the principal literati of the day." A little scattered foxing and light soil.
