About this Item: Jacob Tonson c. 1723-1725., London, 1723. Edition : 1st Pope Edition & 7th edition of Shakespeare?s wo, Recent full blind-tooled alternating calf panels, speckled calf centerpiece panel encased within marbled calf panel border with blind lines and blind-tooled floral border and blind floral cornerpieces, surrounded by outer speckled calf panel, spine in six compartments of blind-tooled bands and gilt floral motifs, gilt green and red morocco labels on two and four, gilt text on six, edges speckled red, endpapers renewed. , Richard Brinsley Butler Sheridan (1751 ? 1816) renowned Irish satirist, a playwright, poet, and long-term owner of the London Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. He is known for his plays such as The Rivals, The School for Scandal, The Duenna, and A Trip to Scarborough. He was also a Whig MP for 32 years in the British House of Commons for Stafford (1780?1806), Westminster (1806?1807), and Ilchester (1807?1812).Printed in large font, nicely margined. Alexander Pope is considered one of the greatest English poets of the eighteenth century. Although he had been writing poetry since the age of 12, his first major contribution to the literary world is considered to be An Essay on Criticism, which was published in 1711 when he was 23. This was followed by The Rape of the Lock (1712, revised 1714), his most popular poem; Eloisa to Abelard and Elegy to the Memory of an Unfortunate Lady (1717); and several shorter works, of which perhaps the best are the epistles to Martha Blount. From 1715 to 1720, he worked on a translation of Homer's Iliad. Encouraged by the very favourable reception of this translation, Pope translated the Odyssey (1725-1726) with William Broome and Elijah Fenton. In this period Pope also brought out an edition of Shakespeare, which silently "regularised" his metre and rewrote his verse in several places. From Pope?s preface: ?If ever any author deserved the name of an original, it was Shakespear?The poetry of Shakespear was inspiration indeed: he is not so much an imitator, as an instrument, of nature; and tis not to so just to say that he speaks from her, as that she speaks thro? him?, Size : 4to, With frontispiece portrait of Shakespeare (engraved by G. Vertue), volume one title page in red and black inks.

About this Item: London - Jacob Tonson, 1709. Hardcover. Condition: VERY GOOD. First edition. Six volumes of Tonson's dramatic works ofShakespeare. Volumes I-V are in uniform bindings as a set, with the pages trimmed down. Volume VI is bound in a different half calf binding with larger page sizes due to their not being trimmed as closely as volumes I-V. The sixth volume could be trimmed and bound to match. This is the first edition of this work, edited by Nicholas Rowe. It is the first edition of Shakespeare's works to be published in the eighteenth century and has been referred to as the first 'modern' edition of the plays. As stated to the title page of volume I this set was originally published as six volumes as seen here. A seventh volume was published by a different publisher, E Curll, a year later in 1710 whichaddedhis poetry and critical remarks on his plays by C Gildon and is sometimes seen bound together with this set. This set contains all six volumes of Shakespeare's dramatic works edited byRowe and isas originally published. Due to this work, Rowe is widely considered to be the first editor of Shakespeare. His practical knowledge helped him to divide the plays into both scenes and acts, including the entrances and exits of the players. He was also one of the first to prefix each play with a list of the dramatis personae and to write a 'life of the author'. The work is based on the somewhat textually corruptFourth Folio. To volume VI signature A4 under the 'here' of 'where. ' and to volume I signature 'A' under the 'G of Goodness'. This copy is not the lineatim reprint issued in the same year. [ESTC T138296]Rowe basing his edition on the Fourth Folio paved the way for eighteenth century editors of Shakespeare, as subsequently they tended to use theFourth Folio as their basis. This includes Alexander Pope. Jacob Tonson was an eighteenth-century English bookseller and publisher best known for having obtained a copyright on the plays of William Shakespeare by buying the rights of the heirs of the publisher of the Fourth Folio after the Statue of Anne came into effect, the first statute to provide for copyright regulated by the government rather than private partiesEach play has a separate title page with the imprint 'printed in the year 1709'Volume I The Tempest, Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Merry Wives of Windsor, Measure for Measure, The Comedy of Errors, Much AdoAbout Nothing, Love's Labour's Lost.
