REMARKS ON THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; DRAWN UP FROM HIS OWN OBSERVATIONS, AND FROM THE OBSERVATIONS OF OTHER TRAVELLERS
Dublin: Printed by William M'Kenzie, [1801?].. 72pp. Dbd. Occasional light foxing and dampstaining. Contemporary manuscript text correction on p.20. A good copy. Lacks the half title. A pamphlet highly critical of the United States, based on the author's personal experience in America and the works of other authors. The text consists of Hull's observations, "founded chiefly on actual experience," supported by numerous, lengthy quotes from other late-18th-century travelers to the United States, primarily the Duc de La Rochefoucauld- Liancourt and Isaac Weld. Intended for potential emigrants, Hull concludes: "I have seen too many people in America unhappy from not having had correct information respecting the country before they set out, not to make me desirous of telling those that remain at home what I know." Howes describes the work as "severely condemnatory." HOWES H779, "aa." SABIN 33638. OCLC 1648408.
