Boston: Printed and Sold by Thomas Fleet, at the Heart and Crown in Cornhill, 1754. First Edition. Small octavo; removed; 34pp. ([A]-D4 E1, lacking half title, otherwise collated complete); woodcut head- and tail-pieces. Small shallow loss across title page top margin affecting title with loss of text (supplied by Evans), brief soil to external leaves, contemporary ownership inscription at bottom of title page, "Hannah Cushing her Book," with additional gift inscription on following page, "To Mr. Bela Lincoln from his friend & [trimmed] / C. Cushing." Good to Very Good overall.

Evidently given to Bela Lincoln as a gift on the occasion of his graduation from Harvard in 1754. It is unclear how Hannah Cushing reacted to her book being given away in such a manner.
