Memoirs of the Life and Writings (Prose and Verse) of R-ch--d G-rd-n-r, Esq. Alis Dick Merry-Fellow, of Serious and Facitious Memory...
Gardiner, Richard

London: G. Kearsly and M. Booth, 1782. First First edition. Original paper covered boards, 264 pps., edges uncut. Complete with front and rear blanks and half-title. The original printed price on the half title page has been struck through by hand in apparently contemporary ink (whether to increase or reduce the original price of three shillings and six pence is impossible to say at this remove of more than two centuries!) The boards are rounded at the corners and the paper soiled; the original spine strip is almost entirely gone and boards detached. The text block however is complete and clean. A copy which is, shall we say, unsophisticated. Original Boards (Item ID: F310a)
