About the object

“Loyalty is still the same, whether it win or lose the game; true as a dial to the sun, although it be not shined upon.” ― Samuel Butler, Hudibras Samuel Butler, a 17th-century satirist, is mostly remembered only for his work ‘Hudibras’ which satirizes religious sects, such as Puritans and Presbyterians, during the English Civil War. It became an instant success and was popular throughout Great Britain, but perhaps its most notable publication came through the political satire artwork of William Hogarth. Voltaire thought highly of Butler’s ‘Hudibras’ “There is one English poem, the title whereof is ‘Hudibras’; it is ‘Don Quixote’ – it is our Satyre Menippee blended together: I never met with so much wit in one single book as in this.” (Lowndes 335) The different parts of this issue were published separately in 1684, beginning with parts 1 & 2 and then part 3 was reissued later with a separate general title page. $750.00 In stock Add to cart Free shipping wordwide!
