Here is a great 219 year old book for your buying consideration. There were 2 volumes of this interesting and sought after book. This is volume one only.
The book's front and rear leather covers are still attached. So is the leather on the spline. The book is also still well bound together. There are no loose pages in the book. There are some tears. There is also some foxing and brown spotting of the pages going on. Looks to be some bookworm damage on the first page (blank one) just inside the front leather cover of the book.
This was the first American edition of this book. The book had been printed in Europe in years before this on. The printer in the US was Mathew Carey of Philadelphia, PA.
The book is 8.75" across, by 10.5" tall. The book is 1.75" wide. The book is 572 pages in length. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
