Publication Details: Bliss, Sands & Foster, 1894

Notes: A variant binding of this scarce early Ford book. All variants noted by Harvey have the misspelling of the author's name on the title-page, but here it is also misspelt on the upper board (suggesting, perhaps, that it precedes those where it is correctly spelt). Rota's ninetieth anniversary catalogue in 2013 had a version of the present design in red cloth
