Printed by Nathan Douglas, for the author, Danbury [Conn.], 1793. First edition. [6], [13]-186pp. Errata and (facetious) list of subscribers bound in after preface, some copies have the errata bound as the last leaf. Rebound, with new endpapers, in later purple cloth gilt. A stain on the first few leaves, a bit of foxing, slight loss to a few words in the preface, else a very good copy. Humorous doggerel supposedly translated from the German.
