MS note at end: "In consequence of this letter Pope new modelled his Dunciad, and made Colley his Hero. The New Dunciad was published in 4 books, on Octr- 29, 1743. See Cibber's Second Letter to Pope (in a small volume of tracts, 12mo) date Jany 9, 1743-4 — on his being invested with these new honours."
Identification of shelfmark is conjectural. Oxford's OLIS catalogue lists three copies of this edition. The textual details of this copy match the description of shelfmark G. Pamph. 1311 (1). G. Pamph. 329 (1) is said to have "MS notes at end," but would appear to be a different variant. Both copies are said to be bound with other items. Cibber's Letter is the only text that appears in this scan, so it's not possible to identify this copy positively.
