Publication Details: Bath: printed by S. Hazard for Cadell and Davis, London, [1798]

Notes: According to ESTC, this is a different translation to that of 1777, which is only attributred to Anstey, famous for his New Bath Guide.

We have not found dimensions for an uncut copy: it was clearly printed in grand Bathonian style, with generous margins. The binder here has chopped the volume out of its proper proportions, managing to do this without encroaching anywhere near the text. To compound this, the boards are disproportionally wide; not horribly so, but enough to be notice...more
