Crown 8vo, full vellum, gilt design within panel borders on sides, elaborate design on the back with lyres and Etruscan motif, gilt edges, by Edwards of Halifax. Under the gilt of the fore edge is a beautiful painting of the house of Sir Thomas Claverings, Oxwell Park, Northumberland whose name appears in ink on the fly leaf of the volume.
