English translation of L'an deux mille quatre cent quarante: Rêve s'il en fût jamais: Rêve s'il en fût jamais, originally published in Paris in 1771. One "N. Pritchard" reported as publisher; Prichard sometimes spelled his name Pritchard (as seen in 1799.036), so credit appears a typographical error with N in place of W; moreover, no Pritchard with given name starting with N found in Virginia in 1799; so the attribution here. Prichard, formerly of Baltimore and Philadelphia, directed a bookstore and publishing house in Richmond from 1792 to 1815.
