Gordon Fraser Gallery, London - first edition, 1975. Hardcover, 10" x 6¼", with dust jacket. Previous owner's details to ffep. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Dark-blue cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, light-grey endpapers, illustrated frontispiece, three other reproductions, the whole printed on special cream stock. Sir Thomas Urquhart (1611-60) is famed only as the translator of Rabelais's 'Gargantua and Pantagruel', and the limited knowledge most people have of his life is that he supposedy died of an uncontrollable fit of laughter on hearing of the Restoration of Charles II. Richard Boston rectifies this lack, and provides the groundwork for a critical assessment of Urquhart's own writing. Boston claims Urquhar as a great prose writer in his own right.
