Thanks for that Findegil. I didn't mean to imply that Folio 60 (or any other FS bibliography) would supply impression quantities, just that it would probably give the number of impressions & dates. The detail about the 1750 deluxe is very interesting though.

So, are we to interpret those statements as FS saying that they bound up "some" second & third impressions prior to the actual 1750-numbered deluxe (--with its limitation statement & loose note describing care of the leather)? The only difference would appear to be the earlier brown endleaves. I'm curious as to why they document this if the number released wasn't of reasonable quantity.

On impression quantities --I've asked FS before, but they don't appear to keep (or perhaps just disclose) figures on how many copies make up impressions.
