London: J. Dodsley, 1789. First Edition. Hardcover. Bound in contemporary calf-backed marbled boards. While some copies have a title page dated 1788, the first edition was published in 1789.

Early ink stamp on front pastedown; clean copy in a worn binding with the spine dry and rubbed and the joints split but holding tight. Good. Item #021523
