T. Jones,, London: 1836 - [vi], 112; (iii)-xviii, 252; (iii)-viii, 267. Embellished with Engravings drawn on the wood by W.H. Craig, Esq. Contents very good and clean. Some creasing and soiling to front free endpaper. In contemporary grained cloth boards decorated in blind, with a new cloth spine with paper label. A very fresh copy. Scarce. While Parts II & III are reprints of Challoner's work, the Memoirs of the Clergy in Part I appear to have been collected from various sources by an unnamed editor. The many woodcut illustrations appear to be new to this edition. Very uncommon, and a very nice copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
