by Butler, Samuel
Lowndes 1, 336. Limited to only two hundred copies, this copy being one of those with the illustrations in black- chiefly Hogarth cuts. Volumes one and three have engraved frontispieces, and all three have engraved title pages. Volume two also has a plain typeset title page. There are many full-page illustrations as well as head- and tailpieces. The first two volumes are the poem; the third volume is, "Notes on Hudibras by Dr. T. Nash." This is a beautiful late eighteenth-century edition printed on heavy paper. There is a little offset from a few of the illustrations. Unfortunately, the binding hasn't held up as well as the text block. All the boards are detached, but the spines are holding firmly.
