Author Defoe, Daniel (1661?-1731) [but no author named]
PlacePub London] but no pleace given
Publisher First edition with no publisher named.
Date 1700 "Printed in the year MDCC" [but prob 1701]
Description Quarto Victorian half pebbled cloth (tips worn) 71pp last page with hole affecting a few words filled in in ink. After the last printed verse two lines added in manuscript from Shakespeare. Titlepage with name, number, a short sum and somewhat browned, the next page poorly centered thus seems to be missing a line of Pindar quote at end of the preface. Introduction has signature & catchword cut off, page 4 with ink marginal bracket added. A few more catchwords cut in half, one page has no fore-edge with a few letters affected, 2 leaves printed skew on page so text not parallel: causes gutter to obsure some beginnings of words and on other side a few letters lost from outer margin. *With these faults, mostly due to haste of printing, it is quite a scarce work in this anonymous first edition. There must have been doubt about its reception as the publisher wished to remain nameless like the author.
