Notes

Folded map opposite page 326: Josephus, Flavius. The genuine and complete works of Flavius Josephus. London : Printed for J. Cooke, [1785-1786].

Issued in 61 weekly parts, each with 1 plate, from Oct. 22, 1785, to Dec. 23, 1786. Cf. Bentley.

"The plates are the same as those in Kimpton's History [Edward Kimpton's A new and complete universal history of the Holy Bible (1781?)], except that each has an elaborate new border misleadingly labelled at the top 'Engraved for Maynard's Josephus' (only the border was engraved for Josephus), the previous signatures ... and titles are [replaced by] new ones ..."--Bentley.

Includes 3 engravings by William Blake: facing pages 13, 65, and 76.
