Printed for William Blackwood, and Longman, Hurst, Rees, & Orme, Edinburgh. 1806, cxxxiv, 296p., mouldmade paperstock, all edges deckled, top edges of signatures opened neatly throughout. Hardbound: a utilitarian early to mid-twentieth-century recasing in dim blue buckram of the original textblock, with subdued replacement headbands and supplied blanks that escape a garish note; the spine titling however is offensively humdrum. Find a few flecks of foxing, some waving and creasings that frequently manifest in mouldmade textblocks, the deckles have picked up toning and dust, the recasing is a little stiff to open, but in general a clean sound satisfactory copy which a crafted spine label would improve. Various sorts of servitudes, including that of women; concludes with a dozen pages on the enslavement of Africans, from Rome to Scotland.
