81 pp. (Small 8vo), 18x11 cm. (7x4¼), period calf spine, marbled boards, gilt lettering. Half-title present.  First Brussels edition. 

OCLC records five copies (Harvard, Princeton, Oxford, BL, UBC) in three records, all three of which have the same pagination and appear to be the same edition.  A rare continental edition of Byron's Manfred and from the appearance of the second-rate printing, it is likely a piracy as well.
