Descripción

London: Stockdale, 1789. 8vo, 265, (7, ads)pp. With a frontispiece, an illustration in the text, and 31 woodcut plates by John Bewick all within the collation. Modern blue boards, cloth backstrip, internally a very good copy with some browning and a few leaves torn at corners with no loss of text. First issued in four volumes (or four vols. in two) in 1788, an edition that is referred to as being of great rarity, and reissued in 1789 in one volume but with the same plates and no note on the title-page of being a reissue. The 1789 is also quite uncommon, being located (like the 1788) in a tiny number of libraries in North America and the UK. 3 sets of the 1788 edition have sold at auction since 1975, and only one copy of the 1789. A very popular title across Europe, this book was published in German by Campe in 1788, immediately translated into French and thence into English all in the same year. The British edition (which was quickly followed by an American edition) was illustrated by John Bewick and a few of the plates are signed "J. Bewick del. & sct." Pomeroy 189 cites the title as illustrated by Anderson in a NY edition of 1806. Osborne p.239. Oppenheimer 345, 6, and 7, had both editions, citing Hugo 33 and Gumuchian 4876.
