4to (246 × 190 mm), pp. [4], 47, [1], without half-title and subscribers’ list (pp. [6]); title rather spotted; disbound.

First edition, in common with other copies described in ESTC, this copy has no half-title or list of subscribers.

Cutts was evidently a member of the Bath and Batheaston circle, and Almeria was issued as a philanthropic fund-raiser. Jackson, p. 35.
