New York: Printed for the Flying Booksellers, 1818. - 12pp. Dbd. Evenly toned, a few minor stains, top corner of last leaf torn diagonally, costing one or more words in the first ten lines. Good. The rare New York imprint of this Philadelphia murder confession. "Craig felt that Hunter had influenced his father-in-law to leave him out of his will. He shot Hunter from ambush with a rifle. He was hanged about a mile from Chester, and at his request he was permitted to walk to the scene from town" - McDade. The titlepage is decorated with a coffin woodcut. Exceedingly rare, with no copies listed in OCLC, which records only one copy of the Philadelphia imprint of this title at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. McDade locates a single copy of the New York imprint, this copy, formerly belonging to the New York Bar Association. Not in Shaw & Shoemaker. McDADE 222 (this copy). SHAW & SHOEMAKER 43764 (Philadelphia ed).
