Fine- Not Issued with a Dust Jacket. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. First published in 1955, this is the 1968 printing, 162 pages, with a two page b&w map. "Few poems have remained so controversial as the Dunciad has for more than two centuries. The four major editions of the Dunciad-those of 1728, 1729, 1742, and 1743-reveal a progressive expansion of the poem's meaning and imaginative range. I have attempted to organize this study on the basis of these successive editins, focusing as much as possible on problems peculiar to each edition and attempting to realize at the same time the growth in vision revealed by Pope 's additions to his poem." FINE-HARDCOVER, not issued with a dust jacket. Blue cloth covers, lettering is bright on the spine.
