Early half brown cloth over marbled boards; modest wear at edges. A reprint of the unobtainable 1708 first edition and the inspiration for John Barth's brilliant (and considerably longer) satire, the Sot-Weed factor is widely considered the first American satire. Very slight brittleness to pages, more to a few pages including the half title which is splitting near the gutter. Old catalog entry pasted loosely to the inside cover.
