ASHLEY, John, Wade's-Passage.
Trifles in Rhyme;

pp. (ii) blank, (i) Title, (i) blank, (1)-156. 5-line Errata slip at the end. Early half green morocco and marbled boards, partially uncut, cutting from a Bath newspaper announcing that the Subscription period is closing pasted to the front blank, a similar cutting from the Bath Journal of 1805 recording a play at Covent Garden Theatre and reprinting a verse of Ashley's sung at the performance, another cutting from the Bath and Cheltenham Gazette for 1817 reprinting a glee written by Ashley and sung at the Harmonic Dinner, both pasted at the end, ex-libris Bath Municipal Libraries with their book-plate roughly removed from the front paste-down and a 'Sold' stamp on title.

*Very scarce, two locations on COPAC : Oxford and the British Library. The latter copy collates with pp.138 and thus appears to lack the Subscriber's List [pp. 139-154] present in the above copy.

Printed for the Author, By Meyler and Son, Abbey Church-Yard, Bath.
