1818. 1st edition thus, following the edition of 1612, and compared and collated with that of John Wreittoun, Edinburgh, 1633. Includes a facsimile title page from 1612.

This is a fine copy of this scarce 1818 edition in a beautiful modern binding consisting of marbled paper and blue cloth hardback with decorated, labelled spine. Gilt edges to all 3 text sides.

The original text is in beautiful fine condition and it is unlikely that there would be a better copy to be found.
