Johnson Dr. Samuel
A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland
W. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1775. First Edition First Printing Twelve-line errata leaves D8 and U4 are cancels with the uncorrected page number 226 on page 296. Leaves D8 and U4 are 34cancels34 because just after the initial binding was completed Johnson decided that changes to these two leaves were essential. In this process the verso of leaf U4 was mistakenly numbered 226 instead of the correct 296. The book has no half-title because the title-page errata-leaf and the two cancel leaves were printed together as a half-sheet. Re-bound in recent full rust cloth gilt lettering on black label on spine tan endpapers. Chapman Hazen p. 151-52Courtney Smith pp. 122-23Fleeman 75.1J1aRothschild 1257ESTC T84319. .
