Rubbed and worn, with some loss of surface paper, corners worn. Internally some light damp staining to margins, though text is clean. "Tomline, Sir George Pretyman, fifth baronet (1750-1827), bishop of Winchester and political adviser ... Tomline was present during Pitt's last days in January 1806 and attended him on his deathbed; after his death Tomline took on the role of custodian of his memory. He preached a eulogistic memorial sermon and undertook Pitt's biography. The result was a two-volume work published in 1821 that took the story to 1793; second and third editions in three volumes followed in the same year" (ODNB)
