Bibliographic details:
Illustrative plates throughout. Sometimes the pagination is carried across the unnumbered plates, at other times it is not. A plate appears to have been misplaced, or moved, as the (second series of) pagination stops at p.38, recommencing at 42, but with only one page unnumbered between, where there should be three. The register is similarly interrupted (only five leaves in gathering E) and there is a stub between p.42 and p.43. This stub has some printed material visible at the edge. There are also 2 stubs between 12 and 13 - these are from the plate at front and the dedication. It looks as if old printed material is being used - probably unused title pages printed singly for reissues - large bold type and rules are visible on what would have been the reverse of the sheet used to print the dedication. PLATES: Engraved portrait facing title page signed 'J. Clark sculp. 1722'; Illustrative plates by Vandergulcht preceding p.1 (second series of pagination); on p. 26; between p.92 and 93.
