Alnwick: Printed at the Apollo Press, by and for W. Davidson, 1809. Seven individual chapbooks bound together as one with a general title-page preceding them. All are in their original wrappers, with cuts by Bewick on the upper covers, and cuts by others on the lower. They have not been cut to a uniform size, but differ from volume to volume. The binding is of late mid to late nineteenth century half calf over cloth, with twin black labels to the spine. General title spotted; some wear to binding; bookplate; front hinge cracked; but a very good, clean set. Sets with the general title-page are very scarce.
