1 p.l., 29 pp. Small 8vo, attractive modern marbled wrappers. [London]: 1816.

A very rare priced catalogue, listing about 500 titles, issued by one of the most important London booksellers of the time. The firm had two locations, joined by a bridge across the street between shops. Black apprenticed for his father from 1781 to 1789 and was succeeded by his son, Alexander. The firm continued until the middle of the 19th century.

Fine copy.
