Description

8vo, pp. 52, [4, ads] + frontispiece. Later blue paper wrappers. Somewhat spotted and soiled (especially half-title), margins of frontispiece and first three leaves repaired.

Notes

The second edition, same year as the first, of Pope's modernisation of Chaucer's 'House of Fame'. The major difference between the two editions is the advertisements at the end, which in the first edition are entirely for Urry's edition of Chaucer, then in preparation, while in the second edition they are a general catalogue of Lintot's publications (perhaps due to Urry's death in March 1715; his Chaucer was thereby delayed until 1721).
