From the Second London Edition, with additions and alterations by the American Editor. This "American Editor," named in the publisher's advertisement (of which he was author), was F. A. P. Barnard, then (1831) of Yale College, later founder of Barnard College. Original boards: front board detached but present, rear board partially detached, lacking back strip, but text block and binding are firm, fully intact; both boards show typical spotting and rubbed edges but no major defects. vii + 128 pp., illus. w/ line drawings, diagrams. Interior is foxed, ranging light to moderate. The bottom fore-edge corner of the final 30 pp. or so shows some discoloration, progressing toward rear, with some paper loss (corner only, affecting no text) to several last leaves, discoloration also on rear pastedown. Reasonably preserved copy of a very scarce New Haven imprint with association to Yale and Barnard College, easily improved by rebacking.
