Bibliographic details:
Octavo in fours. This is a 1763 reprint of the 1743 edition(s). ESTC states: "Printed by William Bowyer; his records show 500 copies printed; the client is named as Dodsley." The Foundling Hospital for Wit is often bound into collected editions, each made up of different issues of each of the six volumes. It is unlikely they were ever sold like this - the issues are advertised separately in the periodical press of the time. For examples of such collected volumes, see Bodleian shelfmarks Douce W 170; (Vet.) 2808 e.25; Johnson e.212. The 'L' in 'JUVENAL' in the epigraph on the title page has come loose in the forme and slipped downwards on the page.
