Titel: The Shepherd's Week in Six Pastorals (1714).
Verlag: London, The Scholar Press Limited
20.2cm x 12.7cm. 60 pages. With beautiful illustrations. Original Softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. The Shepherd's Week opens with a singing contest based on Virgil's Eclogues III and VII. The poems are published with an apparatus imitating that by E. K. in Shepheardes Calender, which permits Gay and his collaborators to direct burlesque shafts in several directions, including the annotations of classical texts by learned Moderns such as Richard Bentley. The relationship of poems to annotations to illustrations (the original is beautifully illustrated) is unstable, and the verse itself is delightfully equivocal in tone — John Gay pays a back-handed homage to most of what he ridicules, including Ambrose Philips himself.
