Francis Grant, A letter to a member of parliament, concerning the free British fisheries, Vol. , pp 10-14.
London, Spavan, R., 1750.


In his Letter to a Member of Parliament Francis Grant quotes a letter from ‘the late Dean Swift’. ‘I give it to you’, he says, ‘without the least alteration’. His printing is possibly as faithful as he claims; it certainly retains features of capitalization and spelling that are modernized in other editions of Swift in this period.
