London: Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1972. Hardcover. G+ (Ex-art library, with plastic label on spine, i.d. marks on book block edges and outermost pages, incl. rear pocket; otherwise only slightly aged overall.). Red cloth, duotone pictorial dust jacket in mylar cover, maps on flyleaves, 430 pp., BW plate as frontispiece. "The first detailed study of the milieu of the eighteenth-century literary hack and its significance in Augustan literature. Although the modern term 'Grub Street' has declined into a vague metaphor denoting all types of hack writing, for the Augustan satirists it embodied not only an actual place but an emphatic life-style. Dr. Rogers sets out to show that the major satirists -- Pope, Swift and Fielding -- built a potent fiction round the real circumstances in which the scribblers lived, and that this is an important, and comparatively neglected aspect of their writing."
