ONE OF TWO HUNDRED COPIES POPE, Alexander.
An Essay on Man, in four Epistles to Henry St. John, Lord Bolingbroke …
A very fine edition, one of two hundred copies according to Lowndes. The four plates in the text were engraved for a forthcoming parallel-text English–Portuguese edition published by Charles Whittington – the prints here being proofs before lettering. Their inclusion along with ‘the present perfection of the typographic art’ should make ‘a specimen of excellence which will be equally acceptable to the collector, the connoisseur, and the admirer of our philosophical poet’ (Advertisement).
