Notes: In verse.
One of two octavo editions with the same t.p. and virtually the same type-setting, page for page, except for the spacing between lines and the setting of leaf A2. In this, the smaller edition, the last line of text on A2 recto (p. [iii]), excluding footnote, ends "as he pro-" and the catchword is "bably"; in the larger octavo edition, the last line ends "is not known." and the catchword is "The". In this edition pages 138, 142 and 143 are misnumbered 140, 144 and 145 respectively and leaf Q3 is unsigned. In the other octavo edition pages 138, 142 and 143 are numbered correctly, but p. 242 is misnumbered 422 and leaf Q3 is signed. Leaf R4 is unsigned in both editions.
Engraved t.p. with vignette (mask with long hair, within oval).
The illustrations are copies of the 1793 Stockdale edition, re-engraved in an oval form. Cf. Gumuchian, no. 2682.
Signatures: pi1A-R⁸.
"Life of John Gay " (p. [iii]-xiv)--is from Johnson's Lives of the English poets.
Verso of engraved t.p. (p. [2] at front)--is blank.
Description: [2], xvi, 256 p., [35] leaves of plates : ill. ; 22 cm. (8vo)
Responsibility: by John Gay, ; with a life of the author, and embellished with a plate to each fable.
