ESTC T 130363: [8],199,[1]p. Scarce first edition of this work on sewers (which until the Victorian domestic sewers came along meant drainage of water from fens and marshes rather than removal of domestic effluent.).

This copy is extremely clean, and it is likely that the spine is original, but the boards fairly modern. More scarce than the edition of sixty years later.
