Bound with half-title present. This copy is Scott's first issue, without the "Epi" catchword and the epilogue printed on a single page, with no footnote, and with all other points, though Scott states that "there are so many differences in the type-setting between different copies of this first edition, that is quite impossible to say, with any approach to certainty, which is the first issue." R.H. Isham and Percy Fitzgerald bookplates. Scott pp 211ff.
