1766 ca. ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Bp. Robert Lowth

Samuel Pegge, 1766 ca; in Anonymiana, or Ten Centuries of Observations on various Authors and Subjects (1809) 138.



CENTURY IV. XVII.

The Introduction to English Grammar printed in 1762 is ascribed to Dr. Lowth, and I believe very justly. The Cypher in the Title is R. D. id est, Robert Dodsley.
