Boston: William Andrews, 1807. 12mo, pp. [6], xx, 296, [2] ads. Original half red roan over marbled boards; a bit worn and rubbed at extremities, front hinge loose but holding, pp. 269-270 with long tear into text but no loss, bookplate removed from front free endpaper, endpapers browned. First American edition with (apparently) no changes made for the American audience from the British prior edition.
