William Rouse:

The Doctrine of Chances, or the Theory of Gaming, made easy to every Person acquainted with common Arithmetic so as to enable them to calculate the Probabilities of Events in Lotteries, Cards, Horse Racing, Dice, &c. With Tables on Chance never before published, which from mere inspection will solve a great variety of Questions.

London: Lackington; Allen & Co: printed by Gye & Balne for the Author; n.d. [1814]. Presumed first and only edition. Engraved title, lvi, (57)-350, + errata leaf: plus two foldouts with three tables. Pages very fresh and clean: faint soiling or foxing to the engraved title. Foldouts crisp: the first is bound too tight into the gutter, so we have left the inevitable short tear (and a little folding-in along one edge) so that it can continue to be used. All edges sprinkled. In 19thC half calf: spine with raised bands and black label, compartments decorated in gilt: binding firm, with scuffs to fore-edge and to calf, marbled boards rubbed. A very good copy. VG+.
