London: Re-printed by E. Curll, Anno 1717. 8vo., [2], [2], 32 pp., contemporary purple half leather, pebbled purple cloth boards. Many typographic flourishes in text. Newspaper clipping with review of a book about Edmund Curll. Wear to hinges and edges of binding, some foxing and damp stains; very good copy. Bookplate “From Curll’s Chaste Press. In the Collection of Lt. Col. F. Grant.” An incomplete edition. Curll says he printed from three editions, viz. 1565, 1567, and 1569. This edition ends with the poems of Sir Thomas Wyatt. Edmund Curll was an English bookseller and publisher, known for shamelessly profiting on scandals, pornography, Whig tracts, and “medical” texts. Curll managed a chain of printing houses, and he is most renown for the unauthorized publication of works produced by other houses, often against the authors wishes, especially in the case of Jonathan Swift.
