About this Item

8vo, pp. 22, [2], 364; engraved frontis portrait of the author and engraved vignette title, 8 engraved plates after Thomas Stothard; contemporary full calf, rebacked, red morocco label on spine; extremities worn, but generally a good, sound copy. The material for the Life of Young is taken from Johnson's Lives of the Poets, "written by Herbert Croft, with the critique of Dr. Johnson, and compared with the Biographia Britannica, and other respectable authorities." The first part of this now famous poem was published in 1742 and achieved immediate popularity, both at home and especially in Germany and France where Young was considered by some to be a more powerful poet than Milton. The poem was greatly admired by Diderot, Madame De Stael and Robespierre, the last of whom is said to have kept the book under his pillow during the Revolution. Bookseller Inventory # 22228
