Printed by J. & J. Harper. This edition specifically dedicated by the publisher to “the young and rising generation of the city of New-York.” First published in London in 1824, with a New York edition appearing in 1825 and a Philadelphia edition appearing in 1829. With a nice early book label on the front paste-down for Arthur McArthur of Limington [Maine], presumably the temperance-minded patriarch of the family rather than the eventual Confederate army officer.
