A note concerning the text:

You might notice there is one word found at the bottom of each page that is then repeated as the first work on the next page, this is called a "leader word" and was common practice in the years prior to 1780's but was mostly phased out by 1810. Leader words were used to help illiterate peoples who folded the pages of the books together in the time period to know which page was the next in sequence. It could have been a way to keep the flow of the text as the reader turned from one page to the next.

Looks great, but Roman numerals on the front read 1774. :)
