Most of the edition destroyed by fire. Only 76 printed, of which four on vellum. The margins damaged by fire. At least one copy is accompanied by a file folder with extra, folded but unbound copies of some of the printed quarto sheets and half-sheets. If such folders are included with other copies, their contents probably varies from one copy to another.
