About

Alexander Pope (1688-1744) is regarded as one of the greatest English poets, and the foremost poet of the early 18th century. He is best known for his satirical and discursive poetry, including The Rape of the Lock, The Dunciad, and An Essay on Criticism, as well as for his translation of Homer. After Shakespeare, Pope is the second-most quoted writer in the English language, as per The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, some of his verses having even become popular idioms in common parlance (e.g., Damning with faint praise). He is considered a master of the heroic couplet. Complete in 12 volumes. Octavo. Poetical Works in 6 volumes; The Odyssey 6 volumes in 3; The Iliad 6 volumes in 3. Tall octavo. Bound by M.M. Holloway of London in green morocco leather with gilt lettering and ruling, and all edges gilt. With engraved frontispiece in Volume I of each set; adorned with engraved plates. Printed for F.J. Du Roveray by T. Bensley, London, 1804.
