Printed for Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, Paternoster-Row, LONDON, 1823. Third Edition overall, but the FIRST EGAN EDITION. Includes Egan edited and wrote the Preface for this Third Edition.

Includes Prefaces to the First and Second Editions, as well as the Egan Preface to the Third Edition. The first edition was published in 1785. Found on the Internet: "Grose and his servant / friend frequently went out at midnight from the King's Arms in Holborn in search of adventures. The back slums of St. Giles were explored again and again. Grose and his servant would mingle affably and good-naturedly with the beggars, cadgers and thieves, who at that time infested the 'Holy Land' - which is what the St. Giles district was called. By this way, they acquired many vulgar words and phrases." Copy of IRVING GOODWIN VANN, with his personal bookplate on the inside front cover. Condition: Covers are disbound but present (i.e. laid-on loosely), as noted above, the spine covering is lacking, the loose boards are scraped and rubbed; there is foxing to some of the pages here and there (quite a bit on a few pages, none on most) but the text is always very clear and legible; overall the inner pages are complete, tight, bright, clean and unmarked. About IRVING GOODMAN VANN - whose bookplate is on the inside front cover (from Wikipedia): ******Irving Goodwin Vann (January 3, 1842 in Ulysses, Tompkins County, New York - March 22, 1921 in Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York) was an American lawyer, judge and politician from New York. Vann married Julie Florence Dillaye (1846-1934), the daughter of a Syracuse real estate developer, on October 11, 1870. They had two children, Florence (1871-1942) and Irving Dillaye (1875-1944). He was Mayor of Syracuse, New York from 1879 to 1880. He was a justice of the New York Supreme Court (5th District) from 1882 to 1895.******. Bookseller Inventory # 000252
