Description
This volume is bound with marbled covered boards (French Curl on Wide Comb Pattern) with a leather spine. The top of the title page has been torn off, and it is likely that there was a previous owners signature there originally(?). On the reverse of the title page is a circular stamp with "Laurence Sterne Trust Shandy Hall" with "The Kenneth Monkman Collection" inside. Laurence Sterne has signed the top of page 1 "L. Sterne". Page 118 has been marked in pencil with 'Story of the Ass'
