This is a reprint edition of the 1715 Tonson edition of Spenser's works edited by John Hughes. However, this two-volume edition contains only The Faerie Queene and Hughes' supporting essays. It was most likely published to compete with two other new critical editions of The Faerie Queene published in London during the same year by Richard Church and John Upton.
