Comments:
Contents: Contains Hammond's Love Elegies; Akenside's Pleasures of the Imagination and Odes on Several Occasions; Armstrong's The Art of Preserving Health. Date: ESTC says MDCCLVIII = 1758 but title page reads MDCCLVIIII = 1759. QUERY: ECCO version of T194009 seems to be missing leaves after p. 58; poem printed on p. 58 appears to be incomplete.
Other matter:
Prefatory matter: Contents [3pp.]
References:
QUERY: is this actually the same as T178929? T178929 is listed on ESTC with a 1759 date; T194009, meanwhile, is listed on ESTC with a 1758 date but the relevant facsimile on ECCO (derived from the Library of Congress copy) actually has a 1759 date. In fact, the Library of Congress catalogue lists only a version of this work with a 1759 date, so the ESTC entry is probably wrong. In addition, in the catalogue of the Albert Sloman Library, University of Essex (also listed on T194009) gives only a version of this work with a 1759 date. The other versions of the work listed on ESTC as T194009 should be checked but it looks likely that there are two ESTC records relating to the same bibliographic entitity, a problem casued by a misreading of the roman numerals.
