I'm teaching Swift's "A Modest Proposal" next week, and I thought it would be cool to look at it on EEBO and maybe show the students.
But I can't seem to get EEBO to find it. I've tried looking under Swift, under the title without Swift's name, under keywords from the title, and so forth. But I haven't had any luck.
And now, of course, I'm completely obsessed. I think we should have a new rule that any early text posted to the web should come with an STC or Wing number so that I can look it up easily!
In lieu of that, however, I'd be grateful if someone with access to Wing or better searching skills on EEBO can help, please. If I can get a Wing number or something, I should be able to get it, assuming it's on EEBO. (It was published in Dublin first, and second, but also eventually in England, but I couldn't find it at all.)
Thanks! (I'd be happy to send a picture postcard from, say, Norwich or somewhere equally exciting to anyone who can help!)
