Boards are slightly soiled, faded and cracked on spine (see photos). Bookplate of the Bathhurst family of Lydney Park in Gloucestershire on FEP. Pencil price on FFEP. Owner has carefully written in ink on title page the family names, "Poole" and "Bathurst" with the date, "June 2nd, 1768", and what looks like the name "Alton."
