In three volumes, bound as two books, volume I on its own and volumes II and III together. Volume I is the 6th edition from 1803, published by T. Cadell and W. Davies in The Strand, and J. Balfour and W. Creech, Edinburgh. Volumes II and III are "a new edition" from 1792, printed and sold by J. J. Tourneisen (it is believed that the first edition was published in 1777). The books have been re-bound in tan quarter leather, over brown cloth. There is a brown label to the spine of each book (the label misspells "Philip" as "Phillip"), but on volumes II and III, the label is for volume II only, with a loose label for volume III inside the book. There is some mild wear to the boards and leather, and light rubbing to some corners. The end papers are marbled . The page edges are stained. The pages are tanned, and there is foxing throughout, but (except for the title pages of volumes II and III) the text blocks are otherwise clean and tightly bound. On the title page of each of volumes II and III, there appears in ink the name "Edward Thomas Howell (?) Thurlow", the figure "2" and the words "Xmas Night 1815". The title page of volume I bears an additional date in ink, "April 3rd 1822". Overall the books are in good+ condition for their age.
