Octavo (214 x 130 mm), pp. xiv, 563, [1, blank]. Contemporary tree sheep, flat spine ruled gilt, red morocco label. Spine chipped at foot, front joint cracked at extremities, but still strong. Small wormtrack to lower margin of last 20 leaves, just touching text; a very good copy. First edition thus. "In 1820 a new edition of Hamilton appeared, edited by Elias Johnston, who states that the text had been revised with the advice and approbation of the author. Johnstone rewrote the whole book and based his chapter on book-keeping on a short summary – although with extensive model accounts – of Cronhelm's Double Entry by Single which had appeared in 1818." Bywater and Yamey p. 188. ICAEW, p. 141. See Bywater & Yamey, p. 188. N° de ref. de la librería 105432
