Imprint lacks publication date; Bristol supplied 1799 as its date, but it was most likely printed in late 1798 as the ephemeris is calculated for 1799, so the date assigned here. Recorded by both Evans (34996) and Shipton & Mooney (48920, from Bristol 10847), so the Early American Imprints Series presents title by under two numbers, though both of those entries are images of the same copy held by the Rockefeller Library at Colonial Williamsburg.
