About This Item

Very Good. London: Printed by P. Spilsbury and Son, for J. Walker, Paternoster-Row; J. Bell; J. Ladley, Mount-Street, Berkeley-Square; and Mr. Jeffrey, Pall-Mall. M.DCC.XCIV. [1794] Quarter vellum on marbled boards, now scuffed. Quarto, 242 pages, 28 cm. First edition. An early twentieth century owner wrote an interesting entry on the front fly-leaf about the various available editions and the booksellers who had them, i.e., Tregaskis, Dobell, Heffer. A second note explains this owners donations of his various collected works of Pindar to Princeton Universitys Library and to his friend S. H. Monk. The black vernacular of AZID, or the Song of the Captive Negro gives the reader an idea of John Wolcots skills: Poor Mora eye be wet wid tear,/And heart like lead sink down wid woe;/ She seem her mournful friends to hear,/ And see der eye like fountain flow./ No more she give me song so gay,/ But sigh, Adieu, der Domahay. This very good copy was purchased from Heffer in Cambridge, Cat. 222, No. 2377.
