Book Description Jacob Tonson, London, 1697. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Good. M Vander Gucht, Cleyn, Holler, Lambart (illustrator). 1st Edition. A good copy in contemporary full leather binding with frontispiece, title page in red and black inks, and 91 (of 101) full page engravings. This is the first illustrated edition of Dryden's famous translations of Virgil's works completed in 1696. The illustrations are spectacular - each dedicated to a subscriber who donated 5 guineas for the privilege. With frontispiece by M Vander Gucht (a flemish engraver working in England); title page; dedication to the Right Hon Lord Clifford 4pp; Life of Vergil 16pp; Preface to the Pastorals 12pp; Poems to Dryden 6pp; Lists of Subscribers [which also provide a plate index] 4pp; plate and text to Pastorals p 1-48; Dedication to Earl of Chesterfield 5pp; Essay on the Georgics 6pp; Georgics pp 49-147; Dedication (45pp); Aeneis pp 201-619; Postscript to the Reader p621-623; Notes and Observations p625-640. The pagination between Georgics and Aeneis is odd in that the page numbers stop with Georgics and restart with Aeneis; the dedication is not paginated and the 'gap' is bigger than it should be (by about 10 pp). However, no content is missing from any of the sections listed. The contemporary panelled calf binding has been extensively repaired at some time, relaying what could be saved of the original calf to both boards and spine. The binding is in good condition. Internally there is a small ink signature of Jasper Radcliffe Cook to the top of the title page. There is a little worming to the bottom margin (not affecting text) which is noticeable from the title page to part way through the preface but is then a single small hole which looks like a dot. Around 4 leaves have small repaired margin tears; there is some page loss (but not content loss) from the bottom corner of pp 331 and 353 and the bottom margin of the plate at p550. The overall condition of the text and plates is good to very good. There are some browned sections, some offsetting from plates to text, and occasional marking, but text and plates are generally clean. 10 plates from the Georgics section are lacking - there is no sign that they were cut out, so it is possible they were lost prior to the point when the binding was repaired. Please enquire if you would like to see more images beyond the 5 allowed by the website. Bookseller Inventory # 031605

Book Description Printed for Jacob Tonson, London:, 1697. FIRST EDITION. Folio: [ ]2, A2, *4, **4, ***2, ****2, *****2, ?2, ??2 x1, B-G4, [ ]4, [ ]2, H-T4, U2; (a)-(f)4, Aa-Zz4, Aaa-Zzz4, Aaaa-Ffff4, Gggg2, Hhhh-Iiii4, Kkkk2. A Fine Large-Paper Copy of the First Edition ?Dryden?s ?translation of Vergil?? says Pope, (whose own translation of Homer was inspired by Dryden?s work) ?is the most noble and spirited translation I know in any language.? (Thomas) ?The book was published by subscription, a system of joint-stock patronage now coming into vogue. [.] Dryden?s correspondence with [his publisher] Tonson showed a good many bickerings during the publication. One cause of quarrel was Tonson?s desire that the book should be dedicated to William III. Dryden honourably refused; but Tonson had the engravings adapted for the purpose by giving to Aeneas the hooked nose of William (Dryden, Letter to his son, 3 Sept. 1697).? (DNB)?Shakespeare probably knew at least the earlier books of the ?Aeneid? in Latin, while Milton?s ?Paradise Lost? attempts to provide an English equivalent not only for Vergil?s epic themes but even for his syntax, diction, and as far as possible, meter. But in Britain he was also particularly well-served by translations. In the seventeenth-century the epic was translated by Dryden.? (Gian Biagio Conte?s ?Latin Literature, A History?) Wing V-616; Macdonald 33A; Wither to Prior #325; Malone I.1.313; See John Barnard ?The Large- and Small-Paper Copies of Dryden?s The Works of Virgil (1697)? in ?Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America? {Columbia, SC} 92, no. 3 (1998 Sept): p. 259-71. An exceptional, and exceptionally large, ?large paper? copy. This copy is complete with the engraved frontispiece, the extra plate depicting Vergil reading the Aeneid to Augustus, and all 101 of the magnificent engraved plates by W. Hollar called for in this edition: ten in the Bucolics, twenty in the Georgics, and seventy-one in the Aeneid. Bound in 17th-century paneled calf, very nicely rebacked in the 18th-century. The spine is separated into eight compartments, ruled and tooled in gold, by raised bands. There are two spine labels, one in red and one in green morocco, tooled in gold. The boards are framed by a single gold fillet.Internally, this copy is in superb condition with very little of the browning associated with this edition. The great majority of leaves are crisp, lily-white and wide margined. In fact, this is the largest, and cleanest copy that we have had the pleasure to handle. There are a few incidental marginal tears, only one of which ?now mended- enters an engraving (opposite p. 261.) The final leaf is ink-stained. Bookseller Inventory # 3017D
