About this Item

First edition of this translation, large 4to, pp. [8], xxxix, [1], 572; nice copy in full contemporary diced calf, gilt lettered direct on gilt-paneled spine, sprinkled edges. With the early armorial bookplate of Westport House. A profusely annotated and well-printed verse translation of Juvenal, by a close friend of Lord Byron, whose name appears in the 4-page list of subscribers. Hodgson was 27 when this volume was published, and it is his first book, and a very substantial one it is: the notes at the back total more than 270 pages. Lowndes, II, 1250: "A translation, says Lord Byron, displaying unquestionable genius. Dr. Drake, in speaking of Gifford and Hodgson's versions, observes they are 'two such excellent, nervous, spirited, and faithful translations of this satirical poet, that it is a very difficult task to adjudge the palm of superiority'.".
