Place of Publication:

Genres:
Miscellaneous collection, Collection including prose, and Periodical miscellany
Format:
Octavo
Pagination:
[2], [3]-264, [4] (p.163 mispaginated '103')
Bibliographic details:
FORMAT: Octavo in fours. Originally printed (and sold?) in 33 parts, each 8p. long plus an index 4p. long. Pagination is continuous, register likewise for the majority of the volume, but there is no gathering D (gathering C is number 3, gathering E number 4, so text is continuous). The space saved by omitting gathering D (the other half of the sheet bearing gathering C?) may have been taken up by the title page and index (which has no real signatures, but a location note on recto of the first page, '*Ll'). Compared with the copy of the first edition at BL shelfmark 1608/4092, this volume contains reprintings of the first two numbers (sigs.Ar-B4v), but reissues of all the subsequent numbers / gatherings. Other sets of the 'first' and 'second' editions may vary from this - including the Bodleian copy of the first edition used in this database. Query: ESTC notes the existence of a second volume containing the rest of this miscellany - does this exist or are the second volumes only relating to the 4th ed?
Comments:
