Note
Boston Public Library (Rare Books Department) copy bound in full, early stained sheepskin panelled in triple-ruled gilt, with spine, board edges, and turn-ins likewise gilt. All text block edges are sprinkled blue. The pastedowns are of stormont marbled papers in blue and pink. The bookplate of Pierce Wynne Yorke is present on the front pastedowns, and his ink stamp is present on the front flyleaf rectos. The binding of these two volumes has deteriorated in a distinctive fashion such that the areas where drops of dispersant were used to push away the dye have been preserved, while the rest of the sheepskin has rotted.
