Note
  • Illustrated with 8 engraved leaves of plates depicting characters from the Bible representing goodness and evil; 5 plates in Good people (Israel, Noah, Lot, Job, Samuel); 3 in Bad people (Pharoah, Belshazzar, Goliath); engravings possibly by William Darton, who was an engraver as well as a printer
  • The two parts, Good people and Bad people, are bound in a tête-bêche ("head-to-toe") binding, in which the two texts are bound back-to-back within the same two covers, with one text upside-down in relation to the other. Each cover is printed with its respective title, place of publication, printer, and price. The term dos-à-dos binding is often used to describe both the tête-bêche format (resulting in 2 covers), and the back-to-back format in which the two texts share a lower board (resulting in 3 covers)
  • Publisher's advertisements on the leaf ([2] pages) preceding "Bad End Frontispiece" and "Second Preface" of Bad people
  • "Price Eighteen Pence"--Cover
