Nelthorpe, George
Julia to Pollio. Upon his leaving her abroad. Written some years ago and now first publishÂ’d from the original manuscript
London. 4°, 334 pp. (262 x 204mm) A volume of eight quarto poems careefully bound together (1770-1783) in contemporary half-calf over marbled paper boards, with "Poems" stamped in gilt on the spine. Manuscript contents and title index in contemporary hand at the back, latter manuscript table at the front, and manuscript page numbers. The boards slightly scuffed, edges rubbed, but a very solid volume, internally fresh with large margins. An attractive collection of well-received English poems of the eighteenth century, including Nelthorpe's rare Julia to Pollio (1770). The inclusion of the latter poem among canonical works by More and Goldsmith gives the work an important cachet. (i) Cartwright, Edmund (1743-1823).
