Amsterdam: De Erven Meijer En Warnars, 1785 Uit Het Engels Vertaald, En Met Aantekeningen Opgehelderd Door Jannes Lublink , den Jongen. 4 Vols. Vol.I-LXX- 205 pp. Vol.II- 367 pp. Vol. III-345 pp. & Vol. IV-310-[2] pp. Circulair author’s portrait on title pp. of Vol. I. and 9 full-page engraved prints by Reinier Vinkeles.

Lublink de Jonge (1736 - 1816) was the first translator of the “Night Thoughts”. His translation in poetic prose appeared in 1766 and was, after years of improvements, followed by a second edition in 1785. If he had not had this text, the translation would have been “infinitely more difficult, if not impossible”, Schenk wrote in the preface. But also with Lublink’s translation it took him eighteen years to complete the “Nachtgedachten”. See: Dict. Nat. Biography LXIII, pp. 368-373. Bookblock uncut and with wide margins. Paper in good condition (apart from some discolouration). Rebound in 20th-century cloth bindings with marbled boards.

Rare complete set with all plates!
