London, Printed for J. Senex, W. and J. Innys, J. Osborne, and T. Longman, 1728 ('Second Edition, very much Corrected')/ 1720 (first edition in English)/ 1707 (first edition, in Latin).

Octavo, [iv] (half-title and title leaves, versos blank), iv, 271, [1] (publisher's advertisement) pages plus 8 full-page plates.

Early full polished calf decorated in blind on the sides, later expertly recornered and rebacked, retaining the original gilt-decorated spine with two contrasting leather title-labels; leather a little unevenly discoloured and rubbed, with minor loss to the polished surface of the spine; scattered foxing (moderate in places); plates offset; tiny blemish to the bottom margin of one plate (a paper flaw, well clear of the printed surface); trifling signs of use and age (a shallow crease to the bottom corner-tip of the last ten leaves is about the extent of it); overall an excellent copy.

The eight plates, normally found with a small folding section, are bound into this copy in an unfolded state by the simple expedient of having the narrow left-hand border of the printed surface of each plate deep in the gutter. The border is visible in four instances, and although the border cannot be seen on the other four plates, all of the other printed plate surface is visible. Interestingly, the plates show no evidence of ever having been folded. Babson 202.
