Description Jubilee edition, vol. 1. Printed and published for the Alfred Committee, by Messrs J. F. Smith and Co., Oxford and Cambridge, 1852. Tall octavo; decorative printed title in red, printed title; pp. xvi, 152, 4; 4 lithographic plates of coins, designed by D. H. Haigh, engraved by W. McDowall.

Giles, and including the 3 extra plates and the two additional pages. (The Manville copy, sold in 2014, was precisely similar to the present volume). Rare.
