    104 p. 16 cm. Full leather. Rubbed on covers and edges, gilt border worn, remnants of spine label, head of spine missing, hinges cracked externally, corners bumped. A bit of label residue on front pastedown. Pages clean. Sterne portrayed himself as the character Parson Yorick in his novels Tristram Shandy and A Sentimental Journey. Through letters to the adoring Elizabeth Draper, this title reveals the author's thoughts and feelings in the last years of his life. It appeared shortly and curiously after Sterne's daughter's volume of her father's correspondence was published without mention of Draper. A follow-up volume 'Letters from Eliza to Yorick' appeared in 1775 and was a forgery. Published posthumously.
