4to. pp. 1 p.l., 134. woodcut title vignette & tailpieces. contemporary sprinkled sheep, rebacked & recornered (rubbed). First Edition.

No writer of the eighteenth century had so masterful a grasp of blank verse as is shown in parts of this poem. the powerful passage descriptive of the plague (book iii.) has been highly praised. As in all didactic poetry, the practical directions are of little interest; but those who value austere imagination and weighty diction cannot afford to neglect Armstrong's masterpiece." (DNB) "[Armstrong's] masterpiece.the verse is dotted frequently with beautiful phrases, and has many passages of extreme power, both in description and in an oratorical eloquence that is Armstrong's own."
