[GREENE, Edward Burnaby]. ~ Cam. An Elegy … London: Printed for W. Flexney ... G. Kearsly ... J. Coote ... C. Henderson ... J. Gardiner ... and J. Almon ... 1764.
4to (229 × 171 mm), pp. , 17, ; without the half-title; cut close along the fore-margin, touching the odd letter but no real loss; disbound.
First edition: a satirical poem on the appointment of the Duke of Newcastle as Chancellor of Cambridge University, with the river itself featuring as a character in the poem, in much the same vein as William Mason’s Isis had reproached the University of Oxford in 1748. Greene’s abilities as a poet later found expression in translations from Classical literature.
