Autograph note signed, one page, 8vo, Turnham Green, Jan. 20th, no year. To [Mr. Lawless], asking him to "Be so good as to order a Set of the new Edit'n of Fielding's works, Calf Lett'd neat, to be sent for me, to Beckets; & I will call when I come to town....'' Included with this item is another ANS from Griffiths (third-person, one page, oblong 8vo, Turnham Green, 26 Feb. 1784), reading: "Mr. Lawless is desired to cross out this Set of Fielding's works, wh. were sent to Mr. Griffiths by mistake. He is to have the 8vo Edit'n when published.'' Both notes neatly inlaid to a sheet from an album together with a portrait of Griffiths. Both letters a little worn, but good; album page unevenly trimmed. Griffths was the founder, proprietor and publisher of The Monthly Review; the first issue appeared in May 1749 when Griffiths was but twentynine years of age. (Item ID: 3453)
