480pp. Duodecimo [18.5 cm] Green cloth over boards with a gilt stamped title and embellishments on the spine and double blind ruled borders on the covers. Top edge gilt. Very good. The boards have numerous very faint indentations, and the front cover is barely perceptibly stained, and there are multiple short splits in the cloth at the ends of the spine. There are large discolored areas on the endpapers, and the front pastedown has a previous owner's bookplate and small label. The text block is cracked a few times near the center, however the text block is still quite sturdy.
A fourth edition of Bartlett's best known work.
