This copy has several irregularities. The imprint makes no mention of the printer, unlike the copies cited in Wing. However, the title does not appear to be a cancel. Most copies call for 72 pages for the first part, others 76. This copy has 76, but the text (which opens with a copy of a letter 'coming newly to hand by a person of quality') does not correspond across pp. 73-74 and pp. 75-76. Binding is rubbed, with some cracking to outer joints to head of spine. Lacking front free end-paper and frontis. Faint annotation to titlepage. Private ownership. Scarce. (bs68)
