Jacob, Giles
AN HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF THE LIVES AND WRITINGS OF OUR MOST CONSIDERABLE ENGLISH POETS, WHETHER EPICK, LYRICK, ELEGIACK, EPIGRAMATSTS, ETC.
E. Curll, London 1720 - This antique hardcover book is bound in three-quarter leather with marbled boards. Leather is mostly clean and smooth, with a few light scratches on the front, rubbing on the rear. Gilt trim, spine decorations and spine lettering are bright. Endpapers are marbled. Inner pages are browned. Front and rear hinges show a previous repair - binders tape is present, still slightly weak. This book was likely rebound in the 1800s. Jacob, known more for his legal writing than his literary criticism, also made an enemy of Alexander Pope and was written into Pope's "Dunciad" as one of the dunces. This volume gives biographies of several English poets, illustrated with pasted-in engravings. 328 pages, plus index; approx. 5"x7". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Popeks Used and Rare Books, IOBA
