Source Description

Designs by Mr. R. Bentley, for six poems by Mr. T. Gray Gray, Thomas, 1716-1771.; Bentley, R. (Richard), 1708-1782. [8]p.,35,[1] leaves,plates : ill. ; 4⁰. London :: printed for R. Dodsley, 1753.

Note: The poems are printed and foliated on the recto only. The 'Explanation of the prints', by Horace Walpole, is printed on both the recto and verso.

Note: According to Hazen, there were three distinct editions dated 1753, all with identical wording on the titlepage. Hazen suggests that this is the second edition; the half-title reads: 'Designs, &c.'; there is an exclamation mark in the rows of printer's flowers on the third and fourth pages of the 'Explanation of the prints'; the compositor ran out of the letter "d" and used an inverted "p" for the last seven occurences on p.26.

Note: Reproduction of original from the Harvard University Houghton Library.

Note: Hazen, 42
