disbound, Volume 1 ONLY of a 2 volumes set, 1st American edition, very scarce. Probably the 1st American edition, though apparently an edition was published in New York this same year by Kirk & Mercein. The American Monthly Magazine and Critical Review in 1817 said of this work-"This book has the worst of all faults, in a work designed for amusement-that of being extremely tedious. The Author has attempted to introduce various political, philosophical, and (if we may so speak) sentimental opinions, in the form of a story; and in so doing he has produced a jumble, from which the reader can extract no interest, and very little information. On this last point we would speak with some diffidence, for the work has an air of mystery, and may contain stores of recondite knowledge, which our vision, bedimmed by its powerful soporific influence, had not the keenness to detect. The writer certainly appears to be a man of some knowledge and latent, but he has learned nothing of the art of writing in a popular manner. His perpetual stateliness perpetually tires, and his manner of trifling, (which he frequently attempts,) reminds us of the mode in which Goldsmith said Doctor Johnson would write fables,-' His little fishes talk like whales.'".
