Comments

This is the earliest American edition recorded in the NUC. However, American Imprints (10462) records a Philadelphia 1822 edition (one private location only), of which RLIN records only a microfilm copy at LC. The 1822 edition curiously has the same imprint and pagination as this 1829 edition.
