012. [BRATHWAITE (Richard)] Drunken Barnaby’s Four Journeys to the North of England, In Latin and English Metre, … Together with Bessy Bell, … The Third Edition, wih several New Copper Cuts, London, Printed for S. Illidge, 1723

Overall a pleasing, complete copy; one of the subsequent owners was one ‘R. Coates, BEF 1918 Sep.17.’ A diverting read for a World War I soldier, and perhaps explaining the wear to the binding. The contents are clean and sound.

8vo, 10 ff., pp. 175 (1), 4 ff. index, frontis. & 5 engraved plates, later (19th c.) polished pigskin, large gilt armorial on upr. cvr., (one or two headlines partially cropped, binding worn).
