Excerpt from Tasso's 'Godfrey of Bulloigne,' (Five Cantos): Translated
Cornwall (4to, 181 I); but the Life of Rickard Carew, Esq., of Antonie. By Hugh 9 '4' gives no light on the Tasso,' is utterly ignorant of it as of nearly everything else. Nor does the noble Editor himself... add a single scintilla. Anthony a Wood blunders un-characteristically in his small 'memoir' in Athena - confounding father and son - and neither in him have we certainty on the The present proprieter of 'anthony representative of the an cient family of Carew - informs me that there are no mss. There now, the family papers having probably perished when a Carew was seized by the Parliament in 1645. NO one, so far as I can learn - spite of this shadow of uncertainty has ever claimed another owner for the initials R. C. Than Richard Carew of 'anthonie.' And SO it may be accepted that to the erudite if somewhat over-stately Typographer of Cornwall, we are indebted for the first attempt to make Seign. Torquato Tasso' speak English.
