Hardcover. 1729. 205pp. Index. Appendix. The Dunciad is a landmark literary satire by Alexander Pope published in three different versions at different times. The first version (the "three book" Dunciad) was published in 1728 anonymously. The second version, the Dunciad Variorum was published anonymously in 1729. The New Dunciad, in four books and with a different hero, appeared in 1743. The poem celebrates the goddess Dulness and the progress of her chosen agents as they bring decay, imbecility, and tastelessness to the kingdom of Great Britain. This copy is the second version. Full calf. Title in gilt on spine. Embossed. Cover is slightly worn. Child's drawings on endpapers. Some notes in pen throughout. Hole burnt in title page. Overall very good considering age of the book. Binding is tight and text is clear and bright. Keywords: 18th Century Poetry, British Poetry, Rare and Antiquarian Books
