Azaria and Hushai, A Poem
Charles Lee, London 1682 - In modern brown half leather with marbled boards, gilt tooling. Spine has tooling and title in gilt, (has the name SETTLE as author, wrongly?). Internally new endpapers, title page within single ruled border, [4], 38 pp, title page has a tiny chip to head, 2 tiny holes at spine where sewn to first 2 pages. Very rare, not been at auction since the early 1980's. Scarce and important! (ESTC R1058. Wing S2662) This counter allegory to Dryden¿s "Absalom and Achitophel" is usually attributed to Samuel Pordage, though it has been also ascribed to Elkanah Settle. Pordage, Samuel (bap. 1633, d. in or after 1691), poet and translator. & Settle, Elkanah (1648¿1724), playwright. See ODNB for a full Bio. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
