Callipaedia: or, the Art of getting Pretty Children. In Four Books. Translated from the original Latin of Claudius Quilletus [by William Oldisworth] By several hands.
London: Bernard Lintott, 1710. Small 8vo, [xvi], 72, ,  pp. With a frontispiece portrait of Katharine Phillips titled "Orinda". Disbound, inserted into a new cloth folding case. First Edition in English. The poem by the French abbe Claude Quillett (1602-1661) was first published in Leiden in 1655 and in Paris in 1656. A Latin version was issued in London in 1708. Two English versions appeared in 1710 and another in 1712. The plates by Elisha Kirkall (1682-1742) were not ready when the book was issued and are thus often lacking. Later editions contain Oldisworth's name on the title-page, identified as translator.
