Egerton, 1824, and do not possess watermarks, as noted by Abbey. Of extraordinary significance and scarcity is the presence of the title page, lacking in the copy Abbey examined, and, as a result, Abbey notes the title simply as Sponge. The title page is missing from the precious few that we have had the opportunity to examine over the last forty years. Houfe notes this volume but under the title Sponge as well.Original printed drab wrappers. Three inch split to spine foot.… Read more
