About this Item

Small 4to. Burgundy calf spine and marbled paper on stiff card stock. 38pp. Very good. Mild binding edgewear, though tight and internally quite nice. Handsome first edition of this slim satirical poem, one of the last works by the short-lived English poet and satirist (1732-64). In this name-dropping attack, Churchill supports his good friend, the radical, politician and journalist John Wilkes (1725-97), and satirizes statesman John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich (1718-92). Ironically, this hails from the library of one of America's greatest candidates -- Adlai E. Stevenson II (1900--65), Illinois governor and two-time presidential candidate. His rubber-stamped ownership signature appears on the front flyleaf. A fine association copy of this scarce satire. Bookseller Inventory # 39114
