BIBLIOGRAPHICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE TOUR FROM SCARBOROUGH TO ...
by Cole, John
First edition, a large paper copy. The total edition size was 158 copies, of which 100 were printed on small paper, 50 copies on large paper, and 8 on colored paper (Lowndes p.491). The large paper copies are different from the small paper copies in the following ways: the book block measures 22 cm rather than 20 cm; the title page contains a view of Hunmanby, rather than a quote from Dibdin; the verso of the title page contains the Dibdin quote and is blank in the small paper copy. Illustrated with original wood engravings by Thomas Bewick (Hugo no.4335). A bibliographical guide of the rare English folio and quarto volumes preserved in the library of the book collector and member of the Roxburghe Club, Francis Wrangham. Describes 100 items with lengthy annotations. Light spotting to endpapers; a very few isolated areas of browning to text; a couple of contemporary pencil amendments and remarks in margins; last two leaves mispaginated.
