London. William Hone. 1819. pp. xxxvi, 439. 8vo. Early cloth with worn spine label. Partly unopened. Keynes 49. 'With his collected Political Essays Hazlitt ended his activities as controversial journalist. He drew upon his writings during the years 1813 - 18 and added at the end some of his "characters" of statemen first printed in the Eloquence of the British Senate, 1807, and some extracts from his Reply to Malthus, 1807. The book was entirely in fine Radical hands, being dedicated to John Hunt, printed by John M'Creery, and published by William Hone......Hazlitt's Preface is characteristically fierce, and the whole book has a strong political flavour.'

The title-pages of the first issue have been removed, and replaced by new leaves. The Advertisment is transferred to Vol 1 and Contents lists have been added to both Vols. The remaining sheets are the same as before. The edition of 1807 is so scarce that it has been overlooked, and this reissue has usually been regarded as the first edition. Hazlitt was at work on The Eloquence of the British Senate during 1806 - 7. The preface and the critical notes introducing the orators whose speeches he selected are among the earliest of his more characteristic compositions. Some of the notes, such as the character of Burke in Vol II are in his best style.
