|Type of Resource:|
"Printed and published by H. Smith [William Dugdale], [1842-1844]." Cf. B.L.
"Each issue consisted of an engraving and eight pages of text; the 145 issues together formed three volumes ... Dugdale essentially offered two prices, because the engravings could also be bought in color for an additional shilling apiece. While each issue was cheap enough for the artistocracy of labor to afford, the full volumes, bound and in color, came quite dear." Cf. Sigel, L.Z. Governing pleasures, p. 45.
Issues 1-59 have an emblematical t.p., identifying the specific contents of that issue; issue 60 does not have a t.p.
"May be had of all booksellers throughout the United Kingdom"--Colophon of each issue.
"No. 60 of The Exquisite will complete the first volume, when some alterations will be made that we hope will give satisfaction to our numerous subscribers. The emblamaticel [sic] title page will be altered so as to give printed matter in its place, a better type will be used and a considerable improvement in the illustrations"--P. 560.
"The complete volume of The Exquisite may be had, neatly bound, for the sum of one guinea"--P. .
