Bibliographic details:
ESTC indexes this volume as N35511. Volume 1 is a different setting to the ECCO copy (held at UTexas) - this copy does not have a second volume so direct comparison has not been possible. It seems probable that this volume also bibliographically distinct. In this volume the 'Cabinet of Love' does not have a title page and is printed continuously with the rest of the volume, beginning half way down p. 139. There is some confusion in this section. 'Dildoides' commences on p.143 but its 'second' page is on p.142 (the catchwords match), before continuing on p.144. Vertical chain-lines: long duodecimo.
Comments:
PAGINATION: p.100 misnumbered '00'. Pages 114, 115, 118 and 119 misnumbered '112,' '113,' '144' and '115' respectively. PLATES: frontispiece, and facing pages 139 and 143. All unsigned. Page cues do not match position on engravings for 'Cabinet of Love'. CONTENTS: Prose pp.24-25. MS ANNOTATIONS: On pages 78, 79 and 82. All dealing with posteriors in Samuel Cobb's 'The Miller's Tale'.
Other matter:
Prefatory: 'Some Memoirs of the Earl of Roscomon.' (pp.[3]-7); 'Mr. Dryden's Character of the Earl of Roscomon' (p.8); 'Postscript' (pp.9-12).
