Item Description: A. Kincaid & J. Bell, and A. Donaldson, Edinburgh, 1758. Hardcover. Book Condition: g- to vg. New edition. 12mo (7 x 4 1/4"). XI, [1], 357, [1]pp (Text); [14]pp (Index). Contemporary full calf, with gold lettering and ruling to spine. Raised bands. "Hudibras" is a satirical polemic upon Roundheads, Puritans, Presbyterians and many of the other factions involved in the English Civil War. The work was begun, according to the title page, during the civil war and published in three parts in 1663, 1664 and 1678, with the first edition encompassing all three parts in 1684. Published only four years after Charles II had been restored to the throne and the Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell being completely over, the poem found an appreciative audience. The satire is not balanced as Butler was fiercely royalist and only the parliamentarian side are singled out for ridicule. Butler also uses the work to parody some of the dreadful poetry of the time. The epic tells the story of Sir Hudibras, a knight errant who is described dramatically and with laudatory praise that is so thickly applied as to be absurd, and the conceited and arrogant person is visible beneath. He is praised for his knowledge of logic despite appearing stupid throughout, but it is his religious fervor which is mainly attacked.Head and tail of spine partly chipped, with gold lettering faded. Binding moderately rubbed along edges. Ex-library copy, with stamp (Library of University of California, Riverside) on inside of front board, and at upper and lower paper edge. Previous owner's inscription dated March 6, 1833 on inside of front cover. Some offsetting and minor foxing to very first and very last leaves. Binding in overall good-, interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 42087

Item Description: 2 volumes. C. Hitch, G. Hawkins, C. Bathurst, J. Tonson, J. Warral, R. Baldwin and others, London 1764. (2)+XXXVI+424+(32); (2)+446+(24 pages + engraved portrait of the author by G. Vertue and 16 engravings by J. Mynde after William Hogarth. Contemporary full calf. spine richly gilt. * First edition with Greys notes.The English satirist Samuel Butler's (1612-80) fame as a writer rests on this his long mock-heroic poem, which ridicules the Puritans and Independents, chivalry, heroism, argument, poetic imagery, new doctrines in the church, intellectual self-sufficiency, as well as scientific investigation and its concomitant, the idea of 'progress'. The poem is learned, realistic, scurrilous, anti-pedantic; it uses travesty, as well as all kinds of popular writings; and is in the tradition that includes Rabelais, Scarron and Swift. This book was the most remarkable document of the reaction against Puritanism in the 1660s, when the poem was first published. Hudibras is based on Sir Samuel Luke, the Puritan Colonel to whom Butler was secretary. Lowndes describes this as the best edition and Dibdin called Gray's edition, "the best critical edition of this author.". Bookseller Inventory # 547619

Item Description: London -C Bathurst et al, 1772. Hardcover. Book Condition: GOOD. First edition. Samuel Butler's brilliant satirical epic written and set against the background of the Civil War. Third Edition, 'corrected and amended. With large annotations, and a preface, by Zachary Grey'. With a portrait frontispiece andseveral plates throughout, some folding. Complete, three parts in two volumes. With armorial bookplates of Maj. General Paget to front pastedowns, and crested bookplatesof Ingestre Hall to front free-endpaper. Hudibras is an English mock heroic narrative poem from the 17th century written by Samuel Butler. The work is a satirical polemic upon Roundheads, Puritans, Presbyterians and many of the other factions involved in the English Civil War. The work was begun, according to the title page, during the civil war and published in three parts in 1663, 1664 and 1678, with the first edition encompassing all three parts in 1684. Hudibras was written in an iambic tetrameter in closed couplets, with surprising feminine rhymes. The dramatic meter portends tales of dramatic deeds, but the subject matter and the unusual rhymes undercut its importance. This verse form is now referred to as Hudibrastic. Hudibras was an extremely popular work with pirate copies and a spurious second part being issued before Butler could produce his genuine second part in 1664. The mock heroic epic and its jaunty verse form known as Hudibrastic became the standard of satire for some time after that with at least twenty-seven direct imitations being produced. Fifty years after the last part was written a new edition was published, with illustrations by William Hogarth, who later became one of the foremost artists of the day. The work remained popular for several centuries as a warning against the zealotry during the Civil War period of English history. Condition: In full sprinkled calf bindings. Externally rubbed, joints starting, wear to heads and tails of spines. Internally, firmly bound. Lovely and bright and clean with just the odd spot, a spill burn to the title of volume II, continuingthrough a few pages. Copperplate ink signatures of Edward Paget to titles, and more modern ink signatures to front blanks. Overall: GOOD. Bookseller Inventory # 020014

Item Description: Printed by J. Bentham, London, 1744. Hardcover. First edition thus. 2 volumes. 1 fl, xiv, xxxvi, [42], 424, [16] pp; 1 fl., 446, [24] pp. Illustrated with engraved portrait frontispiece and 9 plates in Vol. 1, 7 plates in Vol. 2; octavo, contemporary full tree calf with richly gilt spines, red morocco lettering pieces, marbled endpapers. Plates (about half are folding) are designed by William Hogarth. The 3 parts making up Samuel Butler's "Hudibras" - a satirical mock-heroic poem in octosyllabic couplets - were originally published in 1663, 1664, and 1678. This 1744 edition with the extensive notes of Zachary Grey again weds the biting wit of Butler's text with William Hogarth's equally pointed graphical representations of the grotesque anti-hero Hudibras and his contemporaries. Hogarth's cuts were originally published in a 12mo edition in 1726. Lowndes p. 335 names this 1744 publication as the "best edition." Both volumes with old rebacking preserving original spines and endpapers, wear to corner tips, bookplate of Sir Philip Rose in both volumes, slight rippling at top of last quarter of text block of first vol., overall about very good and quite attractive. Plates are pristine. Bookseller Inventory # 21767

Item Description: Printed by A. Reilly, on Cork-Hill, for Robert Owen in Skinner-Row, and William Brien in Dame-Street, Dublin, 1744. 2 vols., 8vo., with a wood-engraved portrait frontispiece and 16 fine wood-engraved plates (5 folding), some light and inoffensive age-staining, small neat signature on front free endpapers; attractively bound in late eighteenth century calf, backs with five raised bands, second and fourth compartments with (respectively) red and green leather labels lettered, numbered and ruled in gilt, all other compartments ruled in gilt, covers mildly age-worn (a larger scuff on each upper board), joints lightly rubbed else an unusually well-preserved, firm copy. With the fine nineteenth century engraved armorial bookplate of John Birney on front paste-downs (one bookplate defaced). With the full index in each volume (14pp and 18pp respectively), and 8pp list of subscribers, and separate single leaf of additional subscribers (often missing) at end of first volume. The first edition with Grey's extensive notes and splendid plates engraved by Mynde after Hogarth. The frontispiece is engraved by Vertue after Soest. The present copy is almost certainly an Irish pirated version of Bentham's Cambridge edition of the same year. The list of subscribers includes several Irish booksellers who presumably resold the Cambridge edition. A clean copy with particularly sharp impressions of the plates. See NCBEL II, p.437.

Item Description: London, by T. Bensley, for Verner and Hood & 8 others in London, 1799, 1799. 2 volumes, large octavo (230 × 143 mm). Contemporary full vellum, covers panelled in blue, double blue lettering-pieces attractively gilt, marbled endpapers, blue sprinkled edges. Lightly rubbed, a little offsetting from plates, an excellent set. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 17 engraved plates by Ridley after Hogarth, woodcut headpieces by Charles Nesbitt, woodcut title vignettes. First edition with Nesbitt's woodcuts of Hudibras, the celebrated mock-epic satirizing the English republicans, with Zachary Grey's notes, which kept Butler's world of outmoded learning accessible to later generations, printed on royal paper. Charles Nesbitt (1775-1838) was a pupil of Thomas Bewick's (indeed, "The best wood engraver that has proceeded from the work shop of Thomas Bewick", according to W. Chatto, A Treatise on Wood Engraving) and the woodcuts here are in Bewick's style, so much so that they are sometimes attributed to him, despite their being clearly signed "C. Nesbitt". Bewick did, however, own a copy of the book - see A Provisional Checklist of The Library of Thomas Bewick, drawn up for The Bewick Society by David Gardner-Medwin. Bookseller Inventory # 29062
