America: Printed at Providence (R. Island) by Carter and Wilkinson, and sold at their Book and Stationary Store, 1794. [4], iii, [1 blank], 83, [1 blank] pp + A Synoptical Table of Prophetic Numbers [folded, as issued]. Stitched, lightly worn, contemporary plain wrappers separated from text block. Very Good. Contemporary signature at head of titles, "A. Peters 1795."

Bicheno says there is no "event so extraordinary as the late revolution in France." It heralds "the utter downfall of the papacy," "a fatal stroke to the papal usurpations, and to the reign of despotism." The author's research in the prophecies leads him to conclude "that the beast which John saw coming up out of the earth was Lewis the Fourteenth, or the French tyranny, perfected by him, and supported by his successors."
