Containing observations on the phenomena, the institutions, arts, customs, historical traits and remarkable enterprises; with anecdotes of their celebrated men, and a tableau of the last revolution of the Swedes. Ex libris The Duke of York and Richard Brinsley Sheridan, with the Duke's title in holograph at the top of the title-page, Sheridan's bookplate on the front marbled pastedown, and Sheridan's emboss of Frampton in Dorset.
