With sixteen pages of adverts to the front publicising a range of goods, from vinegar and sauces to soaps and medicines. Undated. Dated from JISC using estimates from the British Library.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, generally smart. A little rubbed to the boards. Lightly bumped to the head and tail of the spine, with some rubbing to both front and rear joints. Some offsetting to endpapers at the front and the rear. Internally, firmly bound.
