100 BUTLER, Samuel. Hudibras in Three Parts; Written in the time of The Late Wars. With A Life of the Author, Annotations, And An Index.
J. F. Dove. London. 1826 
Small, slim volume, 13 x 8 cm. Tan calf, gilt decs. to spine, contrasting label. Steel engraving to frontis and half t.p. 312pp. The work is a satirical polemic upon Roundheads, Puritans, Presbyterians and many of the other factions involved in the English Civil War. Begun during the civil war and published in three parts, four years after Charles II had been restored to the throne, in 1663, 1664 and 1678. The protectorate of Oliver Cromwell being completely over, the poem found an appreciative audience. The satire is not balanced as Butler was fiercely royalist and only the parliamentarian side are singled out for ridicule. Butler also uses the work to parody some of the dreadful poetry of the time. 35120
