Albany & Philadelphia: 1813. 95,[1]pp. Original drab boards with paper spine, printed paper label on front cover. Rear board lacking, spine partially perished, label chipped, soiling to boards. Light soiling and minor foxing to text. Good. Item #853

Scarce edition of this work on diseases in cattle and horses, first published in England in 1797. Anthony Finley's imprint appears on three different editions of the work in 1813, at Philadelphia, Baltimore, and the present Albany edition. As an artifact, this book is particularly interesting for its printed label, which bears the title along with the Albany imprint of Green and Co. OCLC locates two copies of this Albany printing, at AAS and the New York Public Library, though the copy at AAS bears a different imprint line than the present volume, rendering it a variant. A rare and interesting piece of regional printing.
