Paris: Librarie des Èconomistes en Amour, 1886. Small quarto. Pale yellow wrappers, with color vignette. Main text printed in red. Illustrations by F. Fau. Toe of spine and one corner chipped, wrappers slightly dusty, but a very nice copy. With the small contemporary bookseller's ticket of "The Byron Library," Paris. Item #WRCLIT39138

First edition thus, ordinary issue, after twenty five on Japon. Represented as translated by "Un Bibliophile Fantaisiste," who we presume also contributed the copious notes and prefatory essay. As late as 1936, the 1736 edition of Armstrong's "Poetical Essay" was still confined to the Private Case in the BM.
