Identifying characteristics
The book will be easily recognisable as it is duodecimo and leather bond. It lacks the title page and the dedication. The Table of contents has been heavily restored, but the text is complete. I had taken the leaves out of their case, so that the text is detached from the leather covers. I did so by cutting the endpapers, which are modern.

Circumstances of theft
22nd September, after I had attended an evening class in London, I had stolen from my bag an incomplete copy of the 1612 edition of Bacon's "Essaies" edited by Beale (Gibson 6). The book will be easily recognisable as it is duodecimo and leather bond. It lacks the title page and the dedication. The Table of contents has been heavily restored, but the text is complete. I had taken the leaves out of their case, so that the text is detached from the leather covers. I did so by cutting the endpapers, which are modern.
