Hartford: Oliver D. Cooke, 1822. First edition. Engravings. Paper over boards with leather spine. Duodecimo. 155 pages. Very good. Yellow paper-covered boards with leather spine, which is titled and ruled in gilt. Minor extremity rubs and shallow bumps. Foxing throughout. Binding is sound. Bottom 1" to 1 3/4" of a rear blank leaf is lacking. Overall a very nice copy of this scarce manual.
