Limited edition, numbered 172 of 300 copies, of this collection of satiric fables in verse by the poet and satirist John Hall-Stevenson (1718–1785), reprinted from the original edition of 1768. Hall-Stevenson’s reputation relies heavily on his friendship with Laurence Sterne, his contemporary at Jesus College Cambridge, both appearing in Tristram Shandy and A Sentimental Journey as ‘Eugenius’ and attempting to capitalize on his friend’s success by publishing sequels to Sterne’s writings.
