Bibliographic Details

Title: Trials for Adultery: or, The History of ...

Publisher: S. Bladon 1779-1781, London

Publication Date: 1779

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good+


Contemporary speckled calf, gilt-ruled spine, gilt-stamped lettering in red leather spine label; 5 volumes, 8vo; with 22 engraved plates. Publication dates and plate counts for individual volumes are as follows: I (1781, 8 plates), II (1780, 4 plates), III (1779, 6 plates), IV (1780, 1 plate), V (1780, 3 plates). Two more volumes were issued later. Spines a little dry; some light scuffing and bumping on boards and spines; thin cracks at joints, but holding just fine. Text blocks are nice and clean. File it under law, file it under humor, file it under erotica -- the plates indulge in portraying adulterous couples in flagrante delicto. The title says it all. Bookseller Inventory # D7920
