About this Item

First edition of these poems, published posthumously by the author's son; of two similar issues printed in the same year, this was the one meant for the general public, with the other intended for private circulation only. Browne was a notably witty and amiable conversationalist whose company (though not his public speechmaking) was prized by Dr. Johnson; he is best remembered today for his poems "A Pipe of Tobacco" ("Blest leaf! Whose aromatic gales dispense / To templars modesty, to parsons sense") and "De Animi Immortalitate," a meditation on the immortality of the soul ? both of which are included here, the latter with Soame Jenyns's English translation. 8vo (24 cm, 9.4"). [10], 160 pp. (frontis. lacking). ESTC T116967; Arents, Tobacco, III, 708d. Recent marbled paper?covered boards, spine with printed paper label. Frontispiece lacking; title-page and a few others stamped by a now-defunct institution. Inner margins of the first two leaves and outer margin of the final leaf repaired.
