8vo, pp. 8. Unbound as issued (two loose bifolia), woodcut vignette to title-page. Fore-edges nibbled, some browning and light dustsoiling, sometime folded twice, a small spot of abrasion to final page affecting two letters. Title-page inscribed vertically in ink ‘Please purchase this from a poor lift(?) with poor children’.


Numbered at the head 'No. 1595' (while most copies in COPAC are recorded as being numbered '595'). The inscription seems to indicate that this copy was offered for sale by a mendicant of some kind instead of by the Religious Tract Society directly.
