Dublin: Printed by A. Reilly, 1744. xxxvi, 399p., errata leaf, [14, index], nine copper-engraved plates, some folded, all plates in quite good condition.

Textblock is sound but edgeworn, commences with title page (mild dust-soil), toned and intermittantly foxed signatures, terminates in a worn blank. Plates attributed to Hogarth; the uncredited artist drew essentially the same scene over and over, groups in which persons are being cudgelled. In one, a horse is goosed. Commendable chiaroscuro.
