Institutio graecae grammatices compendiaria, in usum regiae scholae Westmonasteriensis

Londini: exeuderunt S. Buckley, et T. Longman, Regii in Latinis, Graecis, et Hebraicis Typographi, 1790. Small 8vo (approx. 6" x 3⅝"), pp. viii, 194, [2]; title page within an elaborate woodcut border, the final leaf of abbreviations is engraved on both sides; original coarse canvas, covered at an early date with a 'dust jacket' of rough paper, flaps folded over and stitched rather crudely with green thread, the outer surface of the paper now worn, with an inscription on the front panel of "Jehoshaphat Jones's book bought at Mr. North's Brecon, May 4th 1802" (this inscription repeated in various forms on the endpapers. A relatively late edition of this classic Greek school grammar which had been printed for the use of Westminister School since at least 1595. This is an interesting copy, demonstrating not only the often scarce cloth binding typically used on schoolbooks of this sort, but also with a home-made, near-contemporary paper covering evidently applied by a (Welsh?) student to protect his book.
