London: A. Whellier, n.d. [c.1810]. First edition. Title page; 708pp (of 718): with 29 engravings of horrific martyrdoms. Worn and defective copy in new cloth. Lacking at least one leaf and a frontis at the front, as the book starts with only the title page followed by p.5, which is a continuation of the Introduction. The missing pp709-718 will have comprised the Essay on Toleration, and any Index, if there was one. Title page and final plate very soiled, with chipped edges, and conserved in tissue laminate. A few pages at the beginning and the end have bent corners and a little soiling, and there is soiling at p.83, but the body of the book is otherwise in very good order. Quarto, in new binding of brown hessian with a paper label. Very scarce. [Copac and WorldCat list a few copies, some described as second editions, with dates estimated as being between 1790 and 1810.] Good.
