Book Condition: Fair
Edition: First English language edition.
Contemporary calf; 4to (252x194mm); pp.  ("Whereas our trusty.", title-p., dedication, list of subscribers, TOC), 218,  (instructions to binder, errata), plus 29 (of 32) plates, most of them double-page or folding; PLUS 2 extraneous plates tipped in. Boards heavily scuffed; spine dry and chipped; corners chipped. Lacking the FFEP; some browning and dust-smudging throughout (usually marginal, and not infringing upon legibility); 1 plate a bit soiled, and wrinkled along the edges; another plate heavily damaged and torn. An engraved plate published 1783, showing costumes of Europe, Asia, Africa, and America, has been mounted to rear paste-down. Ok, so it's shabby, but it's also rather scarce. Sold as is.
