  • The Duchess of Malfiby John Webster

    The Floating Press 1900; US$ 5.99

  • An Essay on Criticismby Alexander Pope

    The Floating Press 2010; US$ 4.99

    Despite its somewhat dry title, this text is not a musty prose dissection of literary criticism.

The epitome of the subtle but lethal wit Alexander Pope has come to be celebrated for, "An... more...
