Limited to 325 copies (Heaney A39). The history of this important piece of publishing ephemera from its beginning in 1610 up through the 19th century and accompanied by 24 facsimile prospectuses from 2 to 10 pages in length. As the exact size was maintained, it was necessary to place 4 of the facsimiles in a separate portfolio. All but one of the prospectuses done in facsimile come from the Bodleian Library.
