Folio, pp. xv, [i], iv, 130, [iv], viii, iii, [iii], 45, [3]. Contemporary marbled calf, boards bordered with a triple gilt rule, spine divided by raised bands between groups of gilt rules and rolls, second compartment gilt-lettered direct, others with a central sunburst made up of smaller tools, marbled endpapers. Some light toning and spotting. Some scratches to boards, extremities just a touch rubbed.


An attractive copy of two of the folio editions of minor English poets produced by Andrew Foulis the younger in the 1780s, a sumptuous and luxurious attempt to swim against the tide of smaller, cheaper compilations of English poets for the popular market as exemplified by Bell's Poets of Great Britain.
