39 content/introductory pages plus 387 pages of text. This edition gathers weekly editions from number 1 to 25. Through the fictional name of Simon Olive-Branch, Roberts gathered together various pieces of prose, poetry, and correspondences into weekly periodicals. Roberts sought to preserve the rather conservative status quo in British society by publishing material that recalled long standing moral values and practices. This volume, bound in half leather with marbled boards, is in VERY GOOD condition. Heavy scuffing and fading to the covers. Moderate to heavy scuffing and bumping to the extremities. The leather is split along the front hinge but the binding is still solid an intact. Spine sun darkened. Some minor chipping to the marbled paper on the boards. Inner text is clean and tight with the pages faded somewhat and some scattered but monr foxing throughout. Nice copy of this work in VERY GOOD condition.
