Letters in the Original, with Translations, and Messages, That passed between the King, Queen, Prince, and Princess of Wales; on Occasion of the Birth of the young Princess.

[n.p., 1737]. First edition, 8vo, 30, (2 blank) pp. Sewn as issued, some marking to the first and last page. A succession of letters, printed in double column with a translation into French, concerning the birth of George II's grandson and the rift between the King and his son Frederick, who had insisted on his wife giving birth in St. James's Palace. Straining an already bad relationship, this prompted the family's expulsion from St. James's Palace and making their eventual home a centre for Whig opposition. Rothschild 140. Item #14932
