Dublin: Printed by Robert Napper for B. Dugdale, MDCCXCIV [1794]. 12mo., 250, 2 (ads) pp. Full tree calf, backstrip ruled in gilt with green gilt-stamped label, corners slightly bumped and worn, first and last page a little spotted, very good with an old signature on the title page and inscribed on the pastedown “A present to the library from Miss M. O’Grady”. First Irish edition of Cumberland’s religious epic, preceded only by the English first edition in 1792. Described by one contemporary critic as ‘a work imbued with the genuine spirit of Milton, and destined therefore, most probably, to immortality’. New editions appeared until 1811 but since then the work has fallen out of view and Cumberland is chiefly remembered for his dramatic works. ESTC T116785. (Item Id: 105527)
