Description [10] leaves printed on one side only. Engraved title; hand-coloured engraved frontispiece with imprint, and 8 other hand-coloured engravings with text beneath. Lacks original wrappers, but is bound in late 19th or early twentieth century half calf over marbled boards. Binding: 126 x 108mm. Short tear in one leaf without loss; spine a little rubbed; else a very good copy of a rare book. The only copy we can trace is in the Cotsen collection of children's books at Princeton, but that is described as having nine [not ten] leaves; it also lacks the original wrappers. The British library lists a later printing of this title issued by The Minerva Press in 1811.
