Bateman, 1722. 4th edition, corrected. 12mo., pp. [ii], viii, 265, [xxv]. Title-page in red and black, a few woodcut initials and head- and tail-pieces. Pencilled manicules to margins.

Endcaps rubbed, joints worn but firm, corners fraying a little, very good. Faint remains of a signature to top corner of title-page, the removal of which has possibly caused the stain mentioned earlier.

L'Estrange's English, and especially Mr du B.'s French translation.' ESTC T145003; Lowndes II 460   Ref: 52029
