Leather binding, engraved frontispiece and vignette to title page (red and black). Ex Officina Jacobi Tonson & Johannis Watts. Condition: Various ownership information to the pastedown and front free end paper, the earliest of which is dated 1797. Illegible (at least to me) pencil notes to end papers. Rear free end paper torn for an inch or so in from its long edge. Front paste down becoming unpasted. Leather somewhat rubbed and knocked, binding tight and overall a very nice copy, if with eye-wateringly small text.
