Description

4, 8 pages, 2 leaves, 4 unnumbered pages, 2 leaves, 26 unnumbered pages, 1 leaf ; 23 cm.

Apart from the first item (Evans 11984), the third item (Bristol B3319), and the fourth item (Evans 11983), the remainder of the volume is unrecorded in the standard bibliographies of early Americana (Evans, Bristol, or Shipton & Mooney), or in WorldCat as of 8 February 2018. However, the printed slip tipped in between the 32nd and 33rd leaves indicates that the entire volume was conceived and produced as a unit, not as a collection of disparate items.
