Title: The Economy of Love. A Poetical Essay.
Description: Bristol [Printed at The Mercury Press], August 1813. 8vo, pp. xx, 43 [44 blank], including half-title, original boards, uncut; corner cut from blank leaf before half-title, spine defective with most of paper missing. Armstrong (1709 - 1779) published The Oeconomy of Love in 1736, and it was frequently reprinted thereafter, though he did not include it in his collected works. He revised and shortened the work for an edition published in 1768, in which he toned down some of the more lubricious passages. The text of the poem here is 617 lines long. The anonymous editor has supplied an introduction of some 15 pages, in which he makes much of the mention in the poem of Gaspar Tagliacozzi (1545 - 1599), who also has a place in Tristram Shandy, in a discourse about the surgical repair of noses.
