About this Item

Quarto, contemporary calf, worn, newly and neatly rebacked, blank fly leaf and frontispiece portrait quite frayed about blank edges, portrait with crude mend to inner margin, waterstained throughout, first title dusty with neat early signature, second title a bit dust soiled, good working copy. This has, as is proper to the second edition (or technically, second issue of the first edition), the title and portrait of the first edition of 1647, followed by the title of 1648 along with the preliminary leaves belonging to it. The actual text is comprised of the 1647 first edition sheets, as is proper. This odd arrangement is correct and proper, and is set out in the Grolier Club's Wither to Prior. Fanshawe, the translator, was a noted Cavalier poet and diplomat. To this 1648 issue, he has added at the end almost one hundred extra pages of poems both original as well as translations from Virgil, Horace, and Martial, among others. This remained the standard text for the remainder of the century. Wing G 2174-2175; Grolier Club Wither to Prior 346-347. First edition, second issue of Fanshawe's translation.
