4to. Engraved title page + 4 text leaves (pp. 165-68, rectos only). Good. Title page somewhat soiled and age toned; binding traces along left edge. Apparently a promotional prospectus of this work by the well-known calligrapher (noted for his 1741 "The Universal Penman; or, The Art of Writing Made Useful"), consisting of the elaborately engraved title page (which includes an ornate coat of arms) and a consecutive gathering of engraved text pages. This text portion is fairly self-contained, beginning with a large rubricated "The American Colonies" and discussing North America in general topographic and historical terms. Two of these four text pages bear handsome engravings depicting Indians interacting peacably with white men. A nice sampling of the reknowned calligrapher's work. N° de ref. de la librería 18373
