A rare edition of this often-reprinted Jacobite memoir, located by ESTC in just four locations: Aberdeen, BL, NLS, and Illinois. The conger of publishers includes an early appearance by Darton & Harvey, established as a partnership the previous year, mostly publishing Quaker books and children's titles but also purchasing shares of copyrights, as they did here; Lawrence Darton records that they acquired shares in some 40 adult titles between 1791 and Darton's death in 1819 (The Dartons, p. xx).
