OBSERVATIONS ON A LATE PUBLICATION ENTITLED "MEMOIRS OF GREAT-BRITAIN, BY SIR JOHN DALRYMPLE," IN WHICH SOME ERRORS, MISREPRESENTATIONS, AND THE DESIGN OF THAT COMPILER AND HIS ASSOCIATES ARE DETECTED.

London: Printed for J. Almon, 1773. 4to. 28, xx pp. Disbound, title page lightly toned with light foxing. Else Very Good.

An anonymous critique of Dalrymple's 'Memoirs of Great-Britain & Ireland from the Dissolution of the Last Parliament of Charles II,' printed as volume 1 in 1771. This is the only edition. Dalrymple's "cunning," the author says, "Lend[s] a lie the confidence of truth." The Memoirs, purportedly relying on previously undiscovered documents, placed Lord Russell and Algernon Sydney in an unfavorable light.
The final xx pages print letters supporting the pamphlet, "From the Public Advertiser. March 5, 1773," and a "List of books printed for J. Almon."
