[Jane Collier]. An Essay on the Art of ingeniously Tormenting; with Proper Rules for The Exercise of that Pleasant Art. London: A. Millar, 1757. Second edition, corrected. Octavo. , [iv], 233/234 [sic], 232 pages. Page 233/234 bound out of sequence before the beginning of text, but this does not interrupt the flow of the narrative. With an engraved frontispiece of a cat playing with a mouse inserted at front. Bound to style in modern half brown levant morocco over marbled boards, spine ruled and lettered in gilt in compartments, five raised bands, new marbled endleaves (to which are affixed the original blanks). Minor occasional thumbsoiling or foxing in text. Fine. With the 1785 ownership signature of Latitia Beauchamp Proctor on the front blank.
This work has been called the "best-known generic satire written in the eighteenth century by a woman." (Rizzo).
