[2] p. ; 35.8 cm. (2°)

Half-sheet, verso blank. Drop-head title. W.E. Barry, stationer, appears in the ESTC in 1788 at Tothill Street, Westminster (see ESTC t199 and n492046) but the printer of this advertisement is perhaps to be identified with William Barry (d. 1857) who is recorded at Bridge Street, Westminster (see British Book Trades Index s.v. Barry, William, accessed 17 January 2013). Corrections in ink cancelling the fact that 'Orders are taken in, and will be delivered from Mr. Evans's lime wharf, at the Old Barge House, Black Friars Bridge' and indicating in ink at the foot of the imprint: Orders Executed by Mr. Robinson Lambeth Road / near the Obelisk St. Georges Fields / Surry, and with a price reduction likewise marked in ink against the sixth paragraph.
