Footnotes

  • The only copy of this edition printed on vellum. "One copy of the reprint by Burn was on vellum and is now in the Denison collection" (Westwood & Satchell). It reappeared in the Davis sale at Sotheby's on 26 November, 1900, lot 16 (sold for £15.15.0), and again in the same rooms on 20 March, 1967, where it was purchased by Thorp. According to an inserted note from John Simpson, it was probably originally the Corser copy, sold once again at Sotheby's, in July, 1868.
