12mo - 17.5 x 13 cm.; [2] - xxxvi - [2] - 9 - [1] pp. The last section of numbered pages are numbered on the rectos meaning that there are 9 leaves and 18 pages that comprise the original text. This is number 3 of the John Rylands facsimiles and reproduced from the copy in the John Rylands Library. With an introduction by Guthrie Vine. First published in this format in 1910 (MCMX) this is a much later printing with the 2004 date taken from a publisher's note on the back cover and termed one of the Internet Archive publications. The verso of the first blank page is overprinted with a book plate from Victoria University at the University of Toronto and this covers over the John Rylands Library plate. The externals show only the mildest of wear and the interior is clean with a tight binding. One must note that the marginalia in the original copy and the 1910 edition are reproduced also.
