Large 8vo.pp. xx, 202. Stereotyped edition on yellow paper. Contemporary [original?] cloth, a little worn on the spine otherwise Very Good with the occasional marginal note. An ‘intermediate’ edition. The rare 1st Edition was published in 1827 and the 2nd in 1831. This version is possibly the first printed on yellow paper which was found to make it easier to read the numbers. This use of a non-white background colour pre-dates by over a century the use of pastel papers to make both text and numbers easier to read for people with dyslexia.
