Van Hove. paneled calf antique (light dampstain to upper portion of leaves in several gatherings). Ninth Edition, Corrected. The letters were largely written to imaginary correspondents while Howell was imprisonned in the Fleet, 1643-51, as a Royalist or as an insolvent debtor is not entirely clear. It is the work upon which his reputation rests and may "be credited with an immediate literary influence in making the penning of fictitious correspondence a fashionable art." (DNB) "Howell is one of the earliest Englishmen who made a livelihood out of literature.but it is in his Epistolae.that his literary power is displayed at its best. Philosophic reflection, political, social, and domestic anecdote, scientific speculation, are all intermingled with attractive ease in the correspondence which he professes to have addressed to men of all ranks and degrees of intimacy." (Idem) The first volume was originally published in 1645, and all four appeared together for the first time in 1655. The letters include discussion of language, religion, wine, tobacco, witchcraft, and Sir Walter Raleigh and his expedition to Guiana (pp. 21-23, 383-88). European Americana 726/110.
