Pope a prominent 18th C. poet, perhaps best remembered for his satirical work on Dullness, Dunciad. Warburton an author and clergyman, who eventually rose to the rank of Bishop (for Gloucester). Warburton also Pope's literary executor and reputedly encouraged Pope to write the New Dunciad (1743).

Somewhat uncommon in the trade is this 18th C edition of Pope's works, e.g., at the time of cataloguing, we see no other copies of this Potts' set on offer.
