Below this, a house with on either side [the same cut], a seated woman beside a Corinthian column and wheel, with inset a blacksmith's arm and in the background Another row of button decorations and bellow that "SOLD WHOLESALE AND RETAIL BY | THOMAS DOYLE, | At the Providence ACCOUNT BOOK Manufactory, | NO. 28 MARKET STREET. | [pointing finger] Books Bound in the best and most Durable manner. [pointing finger]" The date is calculated by found imprints of Thomas Doyle, the appearance of the cuts and the paper tone.
