About this Item

Volumes 2 - 6 were published in 1725 but the title pages are dated 1722 or 1723. These are firsts of the Alexander Pope edition. Volume 7 is not edited by Pope, but by Dr. Sewell and was printed by J. Darby in London, 1725, and has been bound to match the Pope volumes. Volume 7 contains "Venus and Adonis", "Tarquin and Lucrece", "Mr. Shakespear's Miscellany Poems," "An Essay on the Art, Rise, and Progress of the Stage in Greece, Rome and England, and a Glossary of Old Words us'd in these Works". Volume 7 has been tissue repaired on the front inner hinge. Bound in three quarter dark brown leather and marbled paper boards with gold lettering on the spine and marbled edges. These volumes have had extra illustrations added. There is some chipping to the head and tail of some of the spines -- photos of this are available on request. Bookseller Inventory # 012784
