Early variant of the first issue from the first editon with most plates in their earliest known state including an unrecorded earlier state of plate 94 with the Arms of Newton depicting an ancient ship of the sea with a lion (the first recorded state depicts a ram with a sprig of laurel). Only plate 141 is known in an earlier state with the arms of Robert Earl of Gloucester with a fleur de lis.

Later blind tooled full calf. Complete. All plates clean and undamaged with good margins. An exceptional example of an early first edition with the rare unrecorded plate 94.
