About this Item

Two volumes. Pp. xxi, [1], [2] errata, 439, [1]; [4], 444. Complete with half-titles. Contemporary calf, narrow gilt border, gilt-ruled spine between raised bands, contrasting labels, marbled endpapers. Minor dampstains to front and rear covers of volume II, endpapers foxed, occasional light foxing to text, but overall a nice clean set. The First Edition of John Higgs Hunt’s (1780-1859) translation of Tasso, generally regarded as an improvement on Hoole’s version (1763) both in fidelity to the text and poetic diction. As a translator, Hunt "is more faithful than Pope or Dryden, more spirited than Cowper or Warton, and he has less mannerism and affectation than Mr. Sotheby." (Lon. Quar. Rev., July 1821, quoted in Allibone.) Size: Octavo. Bookseller Inventory # 21925
