Description

This, the first volume of a seven volume set, contains ‘Some Account of the Life and Writings of Mr. Sterne’ and Tristram Shandy 1-3.

The marbled page is double-sided and has been created by pasting pieces of marbled paper onto an unnumbered leaf at the end of the volume instead of between pages 270 - 271.
