First edition, one of 500 numbered copies printed on better paper. Derby was a bookseller in New York State during the early part of the 19th century and later became a publisher. Excellent reference book for someone interested in the booktrade of this period. The numbered edition contains portraits which aren't in the regular edition. Minor wear at spine ends. Frontispiece foxed.
