Bibliographic details:
FORMAT: Octavo in fours. BL 992.h.9.(6.) contains only the 'Two Epistles,' though this volume (a collection of pamphlets) does contain, interspersed, two more of the individual items associated with this made-up miscellany ('Harlequin Horace'; 'Certain epigrams in laud and praise of the gentlemen of the Dunciad'). BL 1162.h.13(10-11) (which ECCO facsimiles) contains only 'An author to be let' and ’Essays, letters, and other occasional pieces relating to the late war of the dunces.’
Comments:
QUERY - INCOMPLETE RECORD: BL copies (and ECCO) are imperfect - only contain two of the items listed on ESTC as contents. Houghton Library and Cambridge and Huntington may be complete? CASE: "This is a made-up miscellany: only the first gathering and last eleven gatherings ... appear to have been printed expressly for it. The intervening material consists of four pamphlets, each of which had originally an independent existence" (Case).
