Full Description

8vo. (14) + (4) + 158 + (4)pp, incl two portrait photo plates. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers.

A facsimile reprint of the first edition, 1780, useful as such. Philip Ward provides a brief historical introduction, but, curiously, makes no reference in it to Gemmett’s 1969 edition of Biographical Memoirs (see that item).
