Notes: Text of poems printed in red.
With an appendix (p. [57]-263) of documents and contemporary accounts of Wilkes and others connected with the publication.
Authorship, formerly in much dispute, ascribed also to Thomas Potter, who may have assisted. A parody on Pope's Essay on man, a small portion only of the work being printed. Facsimile of a reprint, as no original is known. Edited perhaps by H.S. Ashbee (cf H. Bleackley, Life of Wilkes, 1917, p. 437) For full discussion cf. H.R. Watson in Notes and queries, 11th ser., v. 9, p. 121, etc. especially p. 184-185; Bleackley, p. 116-117, 437; H.S. Ashbee, Index librorum prohibitorum.
250 copies printed.
Description: 2 pages 1., [iii]-v, xvi, 263 pages 23 cm
Responsibility: printed at the private press in Great George-street, Westminster, in 1763, and now reproduced in fac-simile from a copy believed to be unique, to which are added, Epigrams and miscellaneous poems now first collected, by the Right Hon. John Wilkes ... Preceded by an introductory narrative of the extraordinary circumstances connected with the prosecution of the author in the House of lords, digested and compiled from contemporary writers.
