New York: Thomas Y. Crowell & Co, 1870. English classical scholar Theodore Buckley (1825-1856) edited this edition of Alexander Pope's famous verse translation; later he would do his own translation in prose. There is no indication of either edition or publication date, but the book is consistent with first editions by Crowell and has the look of the last half of the Nineteenth Century; Quercus therefore arbitrarily assigns it to a "First Thus" category from 1870. An attractive volume: maroon cloth binding with gilt bands and lettering on the spine, where it is named a "Standard Library Edition." Clean text; 337 pages. Mildly bumped. The front gutter has cracked but is holding well. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. First Thus.. Hard Cover. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. First Edition.
