The Ready Reckoner,
or, Trader's Correct Guide, In buying and selling all sorts of Commodities, either Wholesale or Retail.Birmingham: Printed by J. Belcher, and sold by W. Taylor; Sold also by T. Vernor,  Stock Code: 149783
First edition, a trader's pocket manual allowing the owner to quickly calculate a range of different quantities and prices of commodities. As often for such works copies were used and discarded and did not survive; ESTC locates only three institutional copies, in Birmingham Central Libraries, the Bodleian, and Yale.
Octavo (170 x 101 mm). Contemporary sheep, rebacked, red calf label, red speckled edges.
Contemporary ownership signature "Jane Thompson" to title page and again with numerical jottings to rear free endpaper. Light wear to sheep, toning to title extremities but contents otherwise clean. A very good copy.
