Poems on Several Occasions
London- Bernard Lintot 1717 - A highly sought after first edition of Elijah Fenton's Poems on Several Occasions. Being an extremely important text in the history of literature. Alexander Pope was so encouraged by this work that it lead him to ask Fenton if he would assist in a translation of the Odyssey. Unfortunately, lacking the original frontispiece, although holding the original publisher's advertisements and dedication page. Adorned with beautifully engraved decorative head and tail pieces throughout. Condition: Rebacked in a calf binding with contemporary calf boards. Externally, light wear to the boards, as well as some minor evidence of past worming. Internally, firmly bound and delightfully bright. Generally clean, aside from the odd spot and handling mark. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
