Anonymous. By Daniel Defoe. In the foreword, Defoe apologizes for the erratic pagination, which does not, however, affect the text. The Soane copy is the variant with page 195 (first sequence) beginning 'Addenda. Here follow', and p. 137 (second sequence) having catchword 'The' (for 'Like'). ESTC t69387; Furbank and Owens 192; Moore 368.

Copy Notes Imperfect; wanting the final leaf of the appendix. Part of a uniformly bound 48-volume set of works by or attributed to Defoe which on the evidence of endleaves variously watermarked '1814', '1808', etc. was presumably assembled around 1810--15.

Binding C19th half calf, marbled-paper boards, gilt-tooled spine direct-lettered in gilt 'Defoe's Works' and 'Church Of Scotland'.

Reference Number 839
