The Gentleman Instructed in the Conduct of a Virtuous and Happy Life - 1722
10th Edition W. Burton

I am selling my personal copy which I have had since 2007 when I found it in a little bookshop in Oxford England.

This is a very rare book and even more rare because the original owner wrote notes and his name throughout the book (see photos)

The Leather binding on this book is very worn but is still securely holding the book together regardless. There is damage throughout the book but a lot of the damage seems to be from the original owner reading with sooty or inky fingers. You will not find another version of the 297 year old book.
