OF

JOHN GAY.

INCLUDING HIS

FABLES.

IN THREE VOLUMES.

WITH THE LIFE OF THE AUTHOR.
FROM THE ROYAL QUARTO EDITION OF 1720.

His jocamur, ludimus, amamus, dulemus, querimut, irascimur; descri-

bimus aliquid modo pressius, m do elatius: atque ipsa varietate tenta-
mus efficere, ut alia allis, quaedam fortasse omnibus piaceant.

PL'N. EPIST.

Of manners gentie, of affections mid;
In wir a man, simplicity a child:
With native humour temp'ring virtuous rage;
Form'd to d light, at once, and lash the age :
Above temptation in a low estate,
And uncorrupted ev'n an nest the great :
A safe companion, and an casy friend;
L'nbam'd thro' life, lamented in thy end:
These are thy honours!..

POPE.

VOL I.

LONDON:

PRINTED FOR, AND UNDER THE DIRECTION OF,
G. CAWTHORN, BRITISH LIBRARY, STRAND.
