Bibliographic and Editorial note
The History of Pompey the Little was first published in 1751 and sold very well. A second edition came out the same year, and a third, substantially revised, version the following year. There is also an early, but undated, bowdlerised edition published by C. Cooke.
This Ex-Classics edition is taken from a facsimile of the second edition. Spelling and capitalisation have been modernised.
An online version of the third edition is available at http://penelope.uchicago.edu/pompey/index.shtml
