His humorous dedication reads: "I dedicate this book to those friends of mine in america, who, giving me a welcome I must ever gratefully and proudly remember, left my judgment free; and who, loving their country, can bear the truth, when it is told good humouredly, and in a kind spirit." 7 ¾" x 5". Later "cheap edition", 1850. Green cloth boards with stamped decoration to covers and gilt titles/decoration to spine.
