by [Watts, William]
New York: Printed and Published by H. Simpson, 1830. 1st Edition. Original publisher drab boards, with printed paper title label to spine. Spine paper cracked & chipped, with front joint paper separated, though board well attached by the cords. An About VG copy.. xxvii, , 136,  pp. Tipped-in errata leaf follows text. 8vo.
A penciled note in the front of the book asserts this a false-imprint, being actually printed in London. A review of an 1830 New York City directory gives this statement a bit of credibility, as the volume only lists a single "H. Simpson", one Henry, a rigger. (Inventory #: 47776)
