Odes by Mr. Gray.
[London]: printed at Strawberry-Hill for R. and J. Dodsley in Pall-Mall, 1757. Slim 4to, 21pp. Full red morocco extra by Bradstreet, gilt edges, slightly trimmed (see below). First edition of the first book printed at Strawberry Hill published in an edition of two thousand copies. This is the first printing, with 'Ilissus' at 8:17 and a comma after 'Swarm' at 16:19. This seems to be a presentation copy as an inscription partially trimmed appears to read: Carolina Pery ex don. aucto. This is probably in the hand of the recipient. Hazen 1. Rothschild 1067. Hayward 174.
