[4] p. ; 25.0 cm. (4º)

Half-sheet, folded, verso of first leaf and conjugate leaf blank. Drop-head title with text dated at end 'June 18th, 1814.'. The price to subscribers was set at five guineas a copy in boards, or ten guineas 'for Proofs, of which only 100 will be taken on Large Paper, to class with the Large Paper Copies of the new Edition of Dugdale's Monasticon, and the Vetusta Monumenta.' In the event this installment of Charles Wild's cathedral series was not published until 1819 (see BAL, Early printed works, no. 3640), no doubt due to the success and superior quality of John Britton's rival cathedral series which had commenced publication in 1814 (q.v.).
