Contemporary full calf. Page dimensions: 141 x 84mm. Wood-cut tail-pieces. The "Plan and Catalogue" distinguishes between Cooke's Superior and Cheap Editions: "Cheap Edition. These Editions are neatly printed, on a good paper, and contain an elegant Engraving in every number; but, from their cheapness, cannot posses the great advantages peculiar to the other Editions, as, Portraits of the respective Authors, Vignette Frontispieces to each Volume, Subject Prints, besides additional Engravings, Proof Impressions of the Plates, and finely manufactured wove Vellum Paper. Notwithstanding they do not possess those superior advantages, they equal in elegance the best of any other Editions, and are infinitely cheaper than the most common and unadorned. The Price of these Editions is only Sixpence each Number." ; 24mo
