First edition. This bibliography from one of America's leading scholars offers a welcome research on one of the 18th century's "prolific men of letters." Richard Hurd, a Bishop in the Anglican Church, was a consummate writer and editor of books. A close friend of King George III and his wife, he was held in high esteem by Dr. Samuel Johnson, William Warburton, and other leading literati of his age. Horace Walpole was one of his sharpest critics. This bibliography is an important addition to any library of 18th-century historians and bibliophiles.
