This 1811 copy is the first edition in this format, with other editions in 1816 and 1817. Decorative vignettes surround the dedication in the upper right and the title in the lower right. In the lower left corner there is a view of the "Schuylkill permanent Bridge." Colored in outline, backed on thin linen and folded into red half leather marbled covered boards 15x10.
