First edition, 45, [1, errata]pp., some early notations to head of title-page, lightly soiled, disbound. "Burton, John (1696–1771). Though a tory Burton was not so extreme as Dr William King, principal of St Mary Hall, and under the pseudonym Phileleutherus Londinensis he criticized King's celebrated speech at the dedication of the Radcliffe Library, in Oxford, on 13 April 1749. King responded with a fierce 'Elogium famae inserviens Jacci Etonensis, or, The praises of Jack of Eton, commonly called Jack the Giant' (1750), in which he satirized 'the Burtonic style'."—(New ODNB). Phileleutherus Londinensis = John Burton; Dr. K---- = Dr. King, and Dr. R----- = Dr. Radcliffe; O-------d = Oxford. N° de ref. de la librería 33624
