Publication Details: Sabine & Sons, c.1810

Notes: A fragile survival. This text was a popular chapbook title throughout the 18th century. This edition is recorded in COPAC in a single copy, Manchester. Sabine and Son were active from about 1770 to 1810, and this seems to date from towards the end of that period. WorldCat adds a copy at Princeton, with a conjectured date of 1824.
