Half leather (red) with raised gilt spines title and publisher's intitials on spine. Matching leather corner protectors. Marbled page edges. Pink end papers. VERY minor edge rubs and front hinge showing mull . Very strong and tight. Book would grade very good if it were modern, but this is 213 years old and deserves a FINE. No writing. Second volume has more tanning than first: I do not know why, but it appears to a common phenomenon. The opening poem is the "Poetical, Supplicatng, Modest, and Affecting Epistle to those Lietrary Colossuses, the REVIEWERS. Satire was the strong characteristic of Pindar's. works. He was the most prolific and successful burlesque poet of the later eighteenth century. His particular targets were the Royal Academy and the royal familyincluding the king and John Payne (Rights of Man).

New NEW and unopened never read but on front is a small abrasion or paper adhesion. 177 p. Includes illustrations. This IS new and obviously never read because of the way it opens--never been fully opened--but it has two defects: the paper used by OUP was not acid-free and as a result it is heavily toned, giving the impression of an older book. AND on the front is a paper abrasion. For these reason I can not grade it new and have graded it fINE. Please do note atht abrasion, clearly visible on the scan. First edition. First printing. De Cosmos was born William Alexander Smith and changed his name in San Francisco. He became a leading and controversial figure in Victoria B.C. He launched and edited the local paper and became the second premier of British Columba 1872-1874. Desoite the defects I have mentioned, this book is outstandingly better than almost all copies...
