€80 - €120


Portrait engraving of Dr. Winstanley, verse writer, by John Brooks, approx. 7¼" x 4¾" (18 x 12cm) mounted. Winstanley is described on the title-pages of his volumes as a fellow of Trinity College, Dublin, but he is not mentioned in Todd's List of Graduates. He later declared himself to be "Apollo and the Muses' Licensed Doctor," and appended the initials A.M.L.D. to his name. Among the subscribers to his first volume (Poems Written Occasionally, Dublin, 1742, 8vo) were Swift, the Earl of Roscommon, Pope, and Colley Cibber. Nothing is known of his career beyond the fact that he died in 1750.
