The mock mourners. A satyr, by way of elegy on King William. The fifth edition corrected. By the author of The true-born Englishman.
London: printed 1702.
[4], 32 p.; 20.4 cm. (4º)

'The Author of The True-born Englishman' = Daniel Defoe. In verse. Edition statement on title-page precedes statement of responsibility. Apparently a re-impression of the second London edition. The Soane copy has the second forme of signature E (pp. 25--32) printed with the sheet laid on the press the wrong way round, so that pages 25, 27, 29 and 31 are wrongly backed up with pages 30, 32, 26 and 28 respectively. ESTC t70833; Foxon D138; Moore 42; Furbank and Owens 32.

Copy Notes Signature E is bound E1, E1, E3, E2 so that the final page 32 (here printed as sig. E2v) is in its correct position. Bound (1) with two further pamphlets by Defoe, Reformation of manners, 1702 (q.v.) and A hymn to the pillory, 1703 (q.v.), and Henry Addington, later Viscount Sidmouth, An essay on the affinity between painting and writing, [1779] (q.v.).

Binding C19th half calf, marbled-paper boards, gilt double-ruled spine, green morocco spine-label reading 'Satyrs'.

Reference Number 735
