WILLIAM LEYBOURN [?].
The ready reckoner; or, Trader's sure guide ... improved by Daniel Fenning. A new edition, revised and corrected throughout, by T. Crosby.

Description:
The pages are un-numbered. Binder's black cloth, signed in manuscript by J. N. WALLAS, BINDER, WIGTON, 1875, on the front paste-down, lacking leaves A1 and A2, the remainder foxed, dusty and grubby in the margins, with scattered ink blots, a typically used copy, but of particular interest for the binder's ms. ascription.

*The first leaf of each gathering has the statement - 'Crosbys correct edit' - in the lower margin. The printer's imprint is on the final leaf. These facts give the clue to the title of this work - a copy may be seen on COPAC, held in the British Library.

Printed by T. WILSON AND SON, High Ousegate, York.
