[This copy is as tall as, and perhaps wider, than any other which has occurred for sale, to which the measurement has been attached. It measures 5% by 34 inches. A space in page 3, following the word "Mr." is filled in "Francis Foster." This has been run through with a pen, and in the margin is written "Mr. Fr. Foster." These entries are most likely in Walton's hand. The copy has some age soilings, but is generally in good state, though sold not subject to return.-Catalogue.]
