Notes:
Divisional t.p. and separate pagination for: An account of the entertainment given to Field Marshal His Grace the Duke of Wellington, by the Corporation of London, in the Guildhall, on the 9th of July 1814.
Privately printed for distribution to the Lord Mayor, Aldermen and Commons of the City of London, on thick paper with wide margins. At first sight the book appears to be large paper, but an examination fo the aquatint frontispiece shows that the size of the plate would have made a smaller page impossible. Cf. Abbey.
Date of publication from Abbey.
The two plates consist of an aquatint "View of the interior of Guildhall as it appeared at the royal entertainment ..." and an engraved "Plan of Guildhall as fitted up for the entertainment ...".
Engraved vignette on t.p.
