J. S. Jordan. London. 1791.
THIRD EDITION. Small 4o.( 8 x 5.2 inches). x, 7-171pp. Printed part of the half title present but cropped to half an inch above and three quarters of an inch below the printed text. Title page with a small area, presumably a previous owners name excised, from the top of the leaf, otherwise all pages complete. Stab marks to the inner margins from a previous sewn binding but the current binding is certainly quite early, probably the middle of the nineteenth century. Burgundy roan leather spine without any tooling or lettering. Marbled paper on the boards. Boards are rubbed and bumped to the edges and corners. Neat previous owners bookplate to the front paste down endpaper. Overall a good copy of this early impression. ---- Third Jordan printing, after the exceedingly rare first printing by Johnson.
