~ Caractacus, a dramatic Poem: written on the Model of the ancient Greek Tragedy... London: Printed for J. Knapton... and R. and J. Dodsley... London: Printed for J. Knapton... and R. and J. Dodsley... 1759.

4to (260 × 206 mm), pp. vii, [1], 95, [1]; complete with the half-title; title printed in red and black; a little light marginal spotting to gathering M, but a very good, wide-margined copy in recent boards.

First edition of Mason’s second drama—‘a prodigiously fine thing, vastly above Elfrida’ (Warburton)—the (scarcer) variant with the press-figure ‘1’ on M3 and ‘3’ on M3v. Gaskell 6.
