The Original Autograph Manuscript of Pope's earliest work, the "Pastorals," containing alternated readings, many passages differing largely from the published version, with autograph criticism and suggestions in the autograph of the critic William Walsh, 8vo. (842)

Denham, £71

[This manuscript covers four closely-written small quarto pages in Pope's neat and very legible hand. It is headed, in Pope's autograph, "Alterations to the Pastorals," under which he has written ("The Solution of the Queries are written by Mr. Walsh'). Pope submitted the manuscript for criticism to William Walsh, whom Dryden calls "the best critic of the age." The manuscript consists of suggestions by the author of alternated readings of many passages, arguments and queries concerning the use of certain words.

and expressions, to all of which Walsh has written in replies stating his views and preferences. Comparison with the printed version shows that Walsh's advice was followed by Pope in all points of importance. The manuscript was presented by Pope to his intimate friend Jonathan Richardson, the portrait painter, and it has remained until recently

in the possession of the painter's family.- Catalogue.] 5215 Pope (Alexander). The Rape of the Lock, an Heroi-Comical
