London: R. Ackermann, 1813. . Folio. iv, , 21 pp. of text. 40 full page black and white etchings. " The destroying hand of time, and a predominant spirit of improvement are lessening the number as well as figure of the remaining antiquities of York; and the forms of many of them will be shortly known only in their engraved representations. This volume, it is presumed, will preserve some of them from oblivion". Boards are slightly discolored and show a little wear. Internally some foxing around the margins of the plates as well as light offsetting to text pages from the plates. .
