8vo - 22 x 14 cm.; vii - 369 pp. Of the preliminary pages, only the title page, the dedication page and the contents page are present; 6 of at least the 8 noted from pagination. A posthumous work edited by Charles Butler and dedicated to Lord Henry Arundell. This is Volume I only and comprises Meditations I to XIV and Discourses XV to XXVI. Both the meditations and discourses are listed under the general title of Discourses, hence the consecutive numbering. The text block itself, with the preliminary page exceptions as noted, is complete with the expected binding weaknesses, 'tis rather tender. Deckled edges with the head edge being trimmed and with browning/staing on on the margins. Minor damp staining to the margins of the later pages with the paper being still supple. The present casework is much the worse for wear and would need to be removed and replaced or at least repaired. Quite scarce in any condition as this was a private printing done at the behest of Lord Arundell who acted as the benefactor for it.; Ex-Library
