12mo. [ii] (title, verso blank), 308pp (last blank). The title within a narrow double-ruled border, text within a wider double-ruled border, leaving a blank marginal column (for notes?). Contemporary full calf, neatly rebacked with the unlettered spine laid down. Hinges strengthened with Japanese tissue. Lacks a preliminary blank leaf? Title-page is slightly off-centre and a little rubbed along its head edge. The text somewhat offset on some pages in the latter third of the book. A good to very good clean copy.
