In 1728-1729, Jonathan Swift and his friend Thomas Sheridan anonymously published the Intelligencer, a trenchant and often witty commentary on the Irish social and political scene in the year before the publication of A Modest Proposal. The first collected edition of the Intelligencer since 1730, this volume presents the rare original Dublin pamphlets, including full commentary and appendices based on contemporary broadsides, newspapers, and manuscripts, and a fresh bibliographical analysis of the work's textual transmission.
