By Speechly, William

The second edition with additions. Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme. London. [nd.] G. Woodfall, Printer, Paternoster Row to verso of half title. Octavo. xv, 300, (21), (bl.), (1), (1)pp. 6 folding engraved plates. Later half calf, marbled boards, spine in six compartments, leather label, gilt lettering, rules and embellishment. Short closed fold tear to Plate I. Toned with some light offsetting of plates, foxing/browning to index. This edition has an additional folding plate to the 1790 edition, plus additional material. There is some conflict between authorities in dating this edition. Bibliotheca Vinaria dates this enlarged edition to 1789, presumably from the dated preface. Conforming to N67167, ESTC dates this edition 1790?. University of Bath Library dates it 1789. The New York Botanical Mertz Library copy dates it 1789 by preface. The plates hold the key, as they are each dated September 1, 1805. Significant to the library of the vine. A handsome volume. William Speechly (1723 – 1819), gardener to the Duke of Portland at Welbeck Abbey, Nottinghamshire. ODNB.
