London: Printed for Edward and Charles Dilly... and William Creech, Edinburgh, 1778. Hardcover. Very Good+. Contemporary tree calf, gilt-stamped lettering black leather spine label, gilt-stamped ornament on spine; 8vo; pp.  (title-p., blank), [i]-vi, [ix]-xvi, -475,  (errata). Single leaf (should be p. 1) torn away, tho last page of preface and first page of introduction are complete, and library records give no clue as to what that leave may have contained -- possibly a blank (stub remains, no remnants of text). Library records also indicate that TOC and preface are complete, despite screwy pagination listed above ([i]-vi, [ix]-xvi). Spine rubbed, with a little loss to the gilt; some light scuffing along joints and edges of boards. Some foxing and browning to first and last few leaves; contemporary ownership signature at top corner of title-p.; but text block is otherwise clean and unmarked. (Inventory #: JC14356)
