London, T. Payne & Son, 1777. Hardback first edition and first impression. First state with c4 uncancelled. Near fine with some wear to corners of boards and heavily rubbed. Rebacked at some point so presents well on the shelf. Owner's name to second leaf. Some signs of ageing to page block. A nice copy and very scarce in the first issue. Rowley was a creation of Chatterton's in the guise of a 15th Century monk and poet.
