With preface, introductory notice and copious notes, by the editor. In selecting "Sacheverell's Account of The Isle Of Man" as one of the works of the first year's issue of the Manx Society, the Council has been influenced mainly by the consideration that the work itself is extremely scarce; that it is full of interest to the general as well as local reader; and that it furnishes an opportunity of pointing out, by means of the references in the Notes appended to it, the extensiveness of that series of documents connected with the history of this little Island, which is the purpose of the Society, in due course, to lay before the public. To the latter part of the book is a !2 - page section relating to the Manx society. Some pages remain uncut. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 204 + 12 pages.
