Who was Junius ? Now ready, with Facsimiles and Woodcuts, 4to, 636. THE HANDWRITING OF JUNIUS. Professionally investigated. By MR. CHARLES CHABOT, Expert. With Preface and Collateral Evidence. By the HON. EDWARD TWISLETON.
“We congratulate Mr. Twisleton upon having settled, as we think, once for all the long-disputed controversy respecting the authorship of the Junian Letters."-Quarterly Review, April 1871.
"We agree with the Quarterly.' We must accept Mr. Twisleton's work as final. If Sir Philip Francis and Junius were not identical, then it is possible for two persons not only to have precisely the same tricks of handwriting and the same individualities of punctuation, and to preserve them through reams of manuscript, but to be able without knowing it in all moments of forgetfulness to write different hands, each of which shall be the hand of the other."-Spectator.
“Our readers must recognise the earnest desire of Mr. Twisleton to present his case fairly and impartially; and the result will be, we doubt not, a verdict from the majority affirmative of the identity of Francis and Junius."-Notes and Queries.
“We presume that this curious and extremely interesting volume will be accepted by the greater part of the public as virtually settling the venerable question of the authorship of the Junius Letters.
