12 vols. 8vo, sheep, Philadelphia, Matthew Carey, 1787–92

Complete sets of this work are very scarce. It was printed and edited by Matthew Carey. “I was much attracted to the work, and had great reluctance to abandon it, ... but sang its requiem at the close of 1792. That it had considerable merit is universally acknowledged; and there is no vanity in the declar. ation, as the work did not contain a single essay of my own. The whole of my labor consisted in the selection of its contents, and the addition of a few notes."
