This is a very good copy of the First English edition. The green cloth has uniformly darkened with age and there is light edgewear. The gilt has faded somewhat. The binding is square and the contents are fine, with very scattered, light foxing throughout, more pronounced on the prelims. A former-owner’s name in ink has been partially erased on the half-title.
Overall, a solid example that does reveal its age.
