Title: The Vicar of Wakefield. A Tale. By Dr. Goldsmith. Embellished with Wood Cuts, by T. Bewick.
Description: Glocester, Printed and Sold by D. Walker...; Sold also by C. Mutlow...., London. 1809. 2 volumes in 1. Small 8vo, 158 x 98 mms., pp. [iv], 224, including half-title, with continuous pagination throughout the two volumes, woodcut vignette on general title-page, woodcut vignettes on separate title-pages for each volume, 4 full-page woodcuts in text, contemporary half calf, gilt spine, morocco label, marbled boards (rubbed); 6 leaves slightly sprung with fore-margins slightly frayed, edges worn. Bewick's woodcuts for this edition of The Vicar of Wakefield were first published in 1798, and the same woodcuts appeared in later editions. Uncommon. The only copy of this Glocester 1809 imprint that I have been able to find is in the Houghton Library, Harvard. The BL has Wellington and London, 1809, imprints, but apparently not this Glocester imprint. There was also an edition published in Baltimore in 1809
