Journal of Mary Freman Caesar 1724-1741
2002 0-7734-7233-9
Mary Freman Caesar was part of the literary and political worlds of early Georgian England. She was married in 1702 to Tory politician (and future Jacobite) Charles Caesar. Though primarily concerned with contemporary matters and her correspondence with authors such as Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift, she also wrote about events as far distant as the reign of Elizabeth I. Scholars, particularly in Jacobite studies and 18th century literature continue to cite portions of the journal, but it has never published in its entirety. This volume contains a biographical introduction and is carefully annotated.
