Autograph letter signed, 3pp, 4to, n.p., 16 December, [year illegible]. To Mr. Colburn, thanking him for sending "yr. notice of Constantine" and discussing other publications in Colburn's catalogue. Valpy quotes a section of a letter to him from Archdeacon Coxe, as it relates to Colburn, and in which Coxe offers to occasionally send "brief notices of eminent persons not sufficiently known under condition that you do not mention my name," and asks, "When is Franklin Vol. I to appear -- it will soon disappear." Worn and soiled; rather chipped at edges; clean tears to folds with tape-repairs (and some resultant adhesive-staining).

John Abraham Valpy (1787-1854); English editor, printer. (Item ID: 12891)
