scarce Dublin imprint of Beattie's Essay on Truth (1773)

James Beattie

An essay on the nature and immutability of truth, in opposition to sophistry and scepticism. The third edition.

Published: Dublin, Thomas Ewing 1773

Date: 1773

8vo. ppiv 368. full contemporary calf, with a bit of worm damage to the lower board

a curious feature is that the pagination on the contents page does not match the page numbering in the latter part of the book. The book collates correctly and I suspect that the contents page, printed on slightly thinner paper, has been taken from the paper stock for another edition - possibly the London and Edinburgh 1772 edition

good clean condition throughout, with just a little foxing and grubbiness to the page edges
