Description

12mo, pp. x, [ii], 432. Contemporary tree calf, spine divided by gilt rolls, black morocco label, other compartments with central gilt sunburst tools. Light dampmark to corner of first few leaves. Rubbed to spine with some surface chipping, a few light scratches. Ownership inscription of George Scobell to front flyleaf dated 1802 above heraldic stamp of the Scobell family. Ownership inscription of R. Peter to top corner of flyleaf and title page, where it is joined by George Scobell again and stamp of E. Scobell. Inscription to rear flyleaf ‘Bermuda May 1 – 1800.’

Notes

An attractive copy which appears to have travelled to Bermuda, presumably in the ownership of one 'R. Peter', and perhaps returned to the UK with a member of the Scobell family, several of whom spent time in the West Indies with the Royal Navy.
