The Spy; a Tale of the Neutral Ground; referring to some Particular Occurrences during the American War: also pourtraying [sic] American Scenery and Manners
- Three vols. 12mo, bound in cont. German brown morocco for Duke William of Brunswick (1806-84), with his elaborate arms inlaid on all six covers, sides elaborately gilt, spines richly gilt, a.e.g. Paris: Baudry, 1825. First edition to be printed on the Continent. Certainly no other copy of The Spy has ever been bound in such an "over the top" fashion. Very fine set with the elaborately gilt bookplate of Duke William [Wilhelm], nephew of King George III of Britain, in each volume. The first volume lacks the half-title. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
