Description

Foolscap 8vo, pp. [iv], xvii, [i], 63, [1], xxv, [i], 126, [2, ads]. Contemporary black morocco, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco label. Short tear to margin of half-title, several gatherings spotted. Slight rubbing to boards and a small patch of heavier rubbing to head of spine. Armorial bookplates of Oliver Brett (3rd Viscount Esher) and Thomas Erskine of Linlathen (engraved by Lizars) to front endpapers, pencil note to pastedown ‘bought Dulau 1925 12/6’.

Notes

The paper used for the endpapers is identical to the paper on which the text is printed (including the watermark and width of chain lines) - could this be a Foulis binding? Formerly in the collection of Thomas Erskine of Linlathen (1788-1870), advocate and lay theologian, known for his development of Calvinism.
