Descripción

89pp, 4to; consisting of half-title, title, three-page introduction by Rylands, seventy-three page unpaginated facsimile of the main work on consecutive pages, and eleven pages (each with a blank reverse), each carrying a hand-coloured plate. On watermarked wove paper, with top edge gilt, and other edges deckled. Good, on aged paper (first and last pages dusty), in recent black-cloth quarter binding, with grey boards and white label on spine. The main facsimile is from a copy in the possession of Bernard Quaritch; of the last eleven pages Rylands writes, at the conclusion of his introduction, 'To the Governors of Owens College, Manchester, our thanks are due for the use of the second copy, which is quaintly coloured throughout. Eleven pages from this copy are added at the end of the present reprint as specimens of the work of a book-painter of the period. I can testify to the colouring being an accurate imitation of the original, and must not omit to express our thanks to the lady who, not alarmed at the labour of colouring many hundred pages, kindly came forward to help the Council in a difficulty, and thus enabled them to give a series of plates which are no small addition to the book.' This facsimile is scarce: five copies on COPAC (the pagination of whose entry appears to include the blank pages at the end). N° de ref. de la librería 11643
