8. CRUIKSHANK, Isaac Robert Lessons of Thrift, Published for General Benefit By a Member of the Save-All Club. London, Thomas Boys, 1820. Later 3/4 blindstamped leather with marbled boards, a bit rubbed. XVI, 1-38, 43-86, 111-162, 179-240 p. (= text complete). With handcolored engraved title and 10 handcolored aquatints. Two prints missing. First edition. Except for the missing prints in a very good condition. Inscription on flyleaf "EMS/ Lizzie Stent/ Octr 1870". With a printed message to the reader in the preliminaries of the book: "The reader will perceive an hiatus after p. 38, another after p. 86, and a third after p. 162. Some digressions occurred in those places too abstruse to be generally interesting; they have therefore been withdrawn; but in consequence of a temporary absence of the author, the suppression took place after the work was printed. As the connexion of its parts is not disturbed, it is hoped that the liberty thus taken will be tolerated with indulgence."
