Osborne Collection p. 2; Davis, Kendrew of York, 6; Gumuchian 1790. Publisher's printed paper wrappers, front one with an accidental enclosure between wrapper and affixed frontispiece revealed by a small bump; removed from a nonce volume with sewing holes showing, and with evidence by way of the enduring impression of its long-felt pressure that this was therein bound with something smaller following it. A little dust-soiling to some bumped lower corners, towards end, and last page with old spot/adhesion; otherwise => remarkably clean and apparently => unread unless by a very careful child.
