A most pleasant, fruitful, and witty work of the best state of a public weal, and of the new isle called Utopia; Written in Latin by the Right Worthy and Famous Sir Thomas More, Knight, and translated into English by Raphe Robinson, A.D. 1551
London: William Miller, 1808. Quarto, engraved frontispiece and one plate; contemporary straight-grain brown morocco, elaborately gilt. Large paper issue. Large paper issue: a fine copy of this attractive scholarly edition of Robinson's translation of More's Utopia, with notes, a biographical introduction, and an informative bibliography of earlier editions by Thomas Dibdin. Dibdin's introduction was widely influential, not least because it is in this edition that 'the portraits of More are critically discussed' (Lowndes).
