[HALL STEVENSON, John.]
Makarony Fables …
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.
PRE-PUBLICATION MANUSCRIPT CASTI, Giovanni Battista.
‘Il novelliere Italiano versificato ossia le piacevoli e curiose novelle in ottava rima del celebre sigr. abate Giambattista Casti poeta cesareo.’
A handsome manuscript compendium of a selection of the witty Novelle galanti of the Italian poet and satirist Casti, apparently compiled at Vienna two years before the first partial edition was printed at Rome in 1790. An interesting witness to the Novelle’s circulation in manuscript prior to publication, which would repay careful textual analysis.
