The first edition of this collection of correspondences addressed to John Ellis during the seventeenth century.
John Ellis (1643?1738) was an English official and Member of Parliament.
Ellis left a large collection of letters addressed to him on both public and private matters. Two volumes of his correspondence during 1686, 1687, and 1688 were edited in 1829 by George Agar-Ellis, a descendant of his brother Welbore Ellis. Attention had already been drawn to the value of the manuscript by Sir Henry Ellis, who published some extracts in vol. iv., 2nd ser., of his Original Letters.
Bookplate of R. E. W. Maddison to front pastedowns.
