First Edition, second issue. In the first issue the ornament on the title-page was printed upside down; in the second issue the title, A1, is a cancel; the ornament is correctly printed, but “Dodsley” is misprinted “Dolsley”. In this copy, as in the Rothschild copy, this mistake is neatly corrected in ink.

Quarto. Later paper wrappers, stab-holes visible. Folding cloth chemise, red morocco label to front cover. Very faint mottling to title, an excellent copy.

Bibliography: Gaskell 5; Hayward 175; Rothschild 1396.
