A Tour Through Some of the Northern Parts of Europe, Particularly Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Petersburgh. In a Series of Letters

London: T. Cadell, 1775.

Hardcover. Very good. Second edition. 8vo, 411 pp, with folding map as frontispiece. Bound in early full calf with gilt spine in six compartments, red spine label. Front joint rubbed and partially cracked; binding otherwise sound, text very clean. Armorial bookplate of Johnathan Pytts, Esq. on front pastedown. "Wraxall's travelogue is elegantly written, and its Scandinavian and Russian itinerary was novel and therefore of great interest to the reading public....The narrative is self-consciously chivalric and testifies to Wraxall's lifelong interest in tales of intrigue and distress, although Queen Caroline Matilda's predicament does not figure in the text, presumably in the interests of diplomacy" (ODNB).
