Scope/Content: Published (with alterations by John Dryden) in John Dryden, The satires of Decimus Junius Juvenalis (London, 1693). Scope/Content: Manuscript translation by George Stepney of the Eighth Satyr of Juvenal, later edited and published by John Dryden in 1693. The manuscript is written in Stepney's hand, as an annotation from John Dryden attests (f1.r.). This manuscript later passed into the hands of Alexander Pope who added a notation: "Who compares this Original of Mr. Stepney's with that printed in Drydens Juvenal, will see ye vast advantages it receiv'd by passing under his hands. I question not, the same wd appear of ye Other translations there, if ye originals were extant to make the same comparison. This was what that great Man did for almost all his acquaintance." Condition: Original quarto leaves inlaid in later paper; bound in marbled paper; housed in modern brown slipcase.
