Oxford.Henry Ladd. 1853. viii, 117pp. Contemporary full morocco with elaborate gilt decoration to the spine and both boards. Small octavo. First edition. Lacking half-title, and the front endpapers a little overly conjoined where a amateur repair has been effected; boards a trifle rubbed and worn at extremities; else a very good copy of a scarce title.
