One of 'twelve copies' separately printed, with the armorial bookplate to the front pastedown of 'Edward Huth, Wykehurst Park' son of the bibliophile Henry Huth. Bound in the 1880s by Riviere (endpapers watermarked 'Whatman 1886') in half crushed brown morocco over marbled boards, rubbing and scuffing to head and tail of spine, edges and corners. Limitation stated on title page: 'Only Twelve Copies Separately Printed. Not for Sale'; pp31 [1].

The printed text is interleaved throughout and annotated, mostly to the very wide margins in pencil, presumably by Huth who repeatedly challenges and corrects the vexed problem of Defoe attributions made in the text. Thus: '#61 not Defoe; Colepeper (possibly with Defoe's assistance) nation ibid.' William Lee is best known as Defoe's bibliographer.
