Bibliographic details:
ESTC indexes this volume as N35511, but it is a different setting and has different engravings. Vertical chain-lines: long duodecimo.
Comments:
Plates: Frontispiece, facing pages 30, 50, 129. All unsigned. These plates closely follow J. Clark's designs (see T95241). The plate facing p.50 is also in copy of N35511 at UTexas (on ECCO), where unlike here the page cue (p.58) matches position. In N35511 the plates follow follow Clark's designs but are inverted, suggesting that the engraver was working from prints (i.e. copying Clark's designs as printed straight onto a plate. In this volume the print at pages 30 and 50 are inverted, but that at p.129 is in the same orientation as Clark's in T95241. A possible explanation is a double inversion - N35511 copies Clark, the engraver for this volume copies that copy. This theory is supported by the similar shape of the shadow beneath the bed in the engraving 'The Disappointment' in N35511 and this volume, distinct from that in Clark's design.
