The binding appears to be that of another title, repurposed for this volume and the title elegantly written on the cover, with the original binding title still present on the spine.
There is also a name imprinted into the fore edge, though it has become very faint.
One volume limp vellum in 12mo, (14)+497+(15)
On note of condition, this volume is in fair shape, with the vellum binding being loose on the back cover, though still holding. The pages are worn at the fore edges, with foxing and staining throughout, as well as some worming. The main title page is lacking, with only the second title page immediately following present.
