Published by Oliver and Munroe, and Belcher and Armstrong, Boston, 1807. First separate American edition. 258pp. 1 vols. 12mo. A lovely, unsophisticated copy in the original binding.

A set of Shakespeare's complete works was published in Philadephia between 1795-96, with the present separate edition of the Poems following. Jaggard p. 436; Shaw and Shoemaker 13575.
