Reproduced in English only and with reduced plates, under the auspices of his father, Henry Angelo "endeavoured to render [this edition] of more general use, by reducing it both in size and price." Previous editions were double column in both English and French. Advertisement "Mr. H. Angelo Teaches Fencing ." mounted to front pastedown. Rebound some time ago in quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt-stamped leather spine label, early owner's signatures in ink clipped and mounted to front free endpaper, original front blank with printed name plate of George Esdaile.
