Author Name    Samuel Butler.

Title   Hudibras, New Edition in Two Volumes.

Binding   Hardcover

Book Condition   Good

Jacket Condition   No Jacket

Publisher    John Murray. 1835

Seller ID   011405

The two-volume set of the 1835 New Edition, in green cloth with paper label to spine. Clean and sound inside with 100% sound hinges, externally the cloth is marked, faded and rubbed at corners. The paper labels on the spines are complete but only partially legible. Ownership inscription on both front endpapers ** Published only four years after Charles II had been restored to the throne and the Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell being completely over, the poem found an appreciative audience. The work is a satirical polemic upon Roundheads, Puritans, Presbyterians and many of the other factions involved in the English Civil War. The satire is not balanced as Butler was fiercely royalist and only the parliamentarian side are singled out for ridicule. The author is clearly influenced by Rabelais and particularly Cervantes' Don Quixote. But whereas in Cervantes, the noble knight although being mocked is supposed to draw readers' sympathies, Hudibras is offered nothing but derision.
