With front endpaper advertisement leaves in blue, and 8pp publisher's catalogue at end, AND THE ORIGINAL BINDER'S TICKET OF BURN OF KIRBY STREET ON REAR PASTE-DOWN. Jesse's edition was first published in 1851 in Bohn's Illustrated Library. In Addition to the stated contents it includes the short biography of White, the letter supposed to have been written to Miss Mulso by Timothy the Tortoise, and 'Poems'. The Letters are arranged chronologically (thus mixing those to Pennant and Barrington). This first reissue incurs an erratum on p.18 (noted on p.iv) which was successively overlooked in the subsequent reissues of 1870 and 1872. Freeman 3976.10; Martin, pp.143."

The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne 1789. FIRST SCOLAR FACSIMILE
"Scolar Press, [Menston], 1970" "4to., First Edition thus, with a folding plate as frontispiece, engraved and printed titles, engraved title-vignette to 'Antiquities', and 6 plates (1 folding); original printed wrappers, covers lightly bruised else a very good, bright, clean copy. THE FIRST SCOLAR PRESS FACSIMILE, REPRODUCED AT ACTUAL SIZE AND BASED ON THE COPY IN THE POSSESSION OF COMMANDER R.H.S. RODGER. Produced to the usual high standards of this outstanding modern press, this facsimile reissue was drastically under-printed. Copies were soon exhausted and it was subsequently reprinted a number of times in the mid-1970s in hard covers. This is the original facsimile reissue, the only wrappered version and by far the most elusive modern edition."

"The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne. With The Naturalist's Calendar; and Miscellaneous Observations, extracted from his Papers. A New Edition; with Notes, by Edward Turner Bennett and Others. BENNETT'S 'SELBORNE' IN ORIGINAL CLOTH"
"Printed for J. and A. Arch; Longman & Co., [and many others, 1837]" "Roy. 8vo., Sole Edition thus, with engraved title-vignette and 45 engraved illustrations and facsimiles in the text; original green diced cloth, boards elaborately blocked in blind, gilt back, yellow endpapers, uncut, very neatly recased, a most attractive copy in period binding. Bennett's edition is well-known for its very extensive notes. It is similar to Rennie's edition of 1833, and is published by the same consortium. Some of Rennie's illustrations are reprinted. The work as a whole comprises [1] 'The Natural History of Selborne', [2] 'The Naturalist's Calendar', [3] 'Observations on various Parts of Nature', [4] 'Summary of the Weather', [5] 'Poems' and [6] 'The Antiquities of Selborne', all of which have individual titles. The first work includes White's 'Advertisement', John White's biography, and an extended and valuable Preface (containing an excellent summary of previous editions) by the editor's brother, the former having predeceased publication. The second work includes Dr. Aikin's Advertisement. Among the reprinted illustrations from Rennie there are several interesting revisions of caption. Rennie's 'The Village' here becomes 'Selborne, from Darton'; 'The Little Bridge' is here 'Hollow Lane, and Bridge, near Norton'; and 'The Hanger' is here 'Way leading to Gracious Street'. A lovely copy of an important edition. Martin, pp.132-135."
