Wakefield, Gilbert: Correspondence of the Late Gilbert Wakefield, B.A. with the Late Right Honourable Charles James Fox, in the years 1796-1801, Chiefly on Subjects of Classical Literature. London: printed for T. Cadell & W. Davies, 1813. First edition. 8vo., pp. [viii], 232. With half-title. Some light foxing. Slightly later half green straight-grain morocco, gilt and raised bands to spine, orange marbled paper-covered boards, marbled edges. Rubbed, joints and corners worn, but a good sound copy. Collected letters exchanged by the biblical scholar and religious controversialist Gilbert Wakefield (17561801) and the Whig politician Charles James Fox (17491806). 'Fox, while showing due deference to his correspondent's learning, is ready to join issue with him on questions of scholarship, and generally shows himself superior in taste and judgement to the classical scholar.' (Clarke, Greek Studies in England). Fox was known as an enthusiastic classicist, an interest he had developed as a schoolboy. He continued to read the classics 'in their original languages for the whole of his adult life. Friendships with classical scholars such as Samuel Parr in early life, and with Gilbert Wakefield after 1796, confirmed these predilections. It was one of Fox's proudest achievements that he established dates for the Greek poet Lycophron that have never since been challenged.' (ODNB) Between 1796 and 1797 Wakefield published at his own expense his huge three-volume edition of Lucretius, which he dedicated to Fox.   Ref: 51272
