New York: Denniston and Cheetham, 1802. 72pp, disbound, light tanning. Early ownership signature in top margin of title page. Good+.
Cheetham, notorious pamphleteer and journalist, edited the Democratic-Republicans' newspaper in New York, whose bitterly partisan politics involved Burr [then Jefferson's Vice President], Clinton, and Hamilton factions. Cheetham regularly attacked Burr, and does so here, saying that "there is about his actions a cunning, a sort of legerdemain, which, while it defies conclusive proof, eludes the most acute research." This is the first of three 1802 printings.
