The Poetical Works of Alexander Pope

£34.99

Product description

According to the title page, 'The Poetical Works of Alexander Pope has a Memoir of the Author, Notes and Critical Notices on Each Poem by the Rev George Croly LLD Rector of St. Stephen's, Walbrook, London. ' It is labelled as 'New Edition' on this page and published in 1854.

The boards are bound in red cloth with an identical gold embossed pattern and border on both the front and back, without any lettering. The spine has a ribbed effect dividing it into six sections, each with a gold embossed floral pattern, with the exception of the second one down which contains the title 'Pope's Poetical Works'. All of the board edges are worn and the corners are bumped, while the external hinges are worn, as are the 'ribs'. Both top and bottom of the spine are frayed and torn, particularly the former. The endpapers, front and back, are foxed, with the front having a fifty-five millimetre split at the hinge and the rear showing signs of pencil marks. The rear hinge is intact and the binding is tight.

There are two frontispieces with plates of Alexander Pope by Richardson and an illustration by West of Pope's quote, 'To closer shades the panting flocks remove..' Both are foxed. The pages are gilt-edged on all the visible edges. All of the page edges are light-faded with some foxing and marks. Page 506 is badly creased across the top third of the sheet and the successive forty pages are dented/creased on the top edge, indicating a drop or a knock.
