The Book Treade in Northumberland and Durham to 1840. John Mitchell 1772 - 1819. Bookseller, publisher and printer was working in Newcastle from 1799 until his death in 1819.

I have noted it in real first issues and also in one copy of the second edition, but not in copies of intermediate issues.....I include it as a feature of a 'first issue' from motives of propriety rather than from conviction, and collectors who have a copy of this novel showing all the features of a first issue but lacking the advertisment leaf would, in my opinion, be hypercritical in rejecting their prey on that account.' This copy has some of Trollope's 1st issue points, but not all.
