About This Item

Very Good +. Oxford, printed for R. Clements, 1753. In-12, [ii; xii; half-title, verso blank; prologue; pages 13 -108; 2 final blanks]. Brackets drawn on a few lines on pages 55 and 67. Complete. Contemporary calf with gilt decoration, marbled end-papers. The first three books of tooth-lesse satires, attacking institutions, were published in 1597, with reprints in 1598 and 1602, and the last three of byting satires, attacking individuals under pseudonyms which were probably no disguise to Halls contemporaries, in 1598 and 1599. Hall claimed these were the first satires in the English language to have taken Juvenal for a model. They gave much offense, and an attempt was made to have them all burned. The British Library copy of this title has a manuscript note saying the editor of this (1753) edition was William Thompson of Queens College, Oxford. Bookplates of Frances (with coronet and shelf mark) and Stuart Bennett. Ownership signature of Sam. Gillam. Eighteenth century mottled calf, marbled endpapers.
