Notes: First 'Diamond' edition, indeed, early in that series, and in Pickering's output generally. 'The Diamond Classics were ... a typographical tour de force and a novelty, and an advertisement offering these classics in 48vo as "the smallest ever printed, being less than Sedan, Elzevier, or Louvre editions"'. The additional title-page is dated 1822, the printed title and the colophon 1823.
