Title lacks imprint; this item was also issued as the last gathering in The New American Clerk's Magazine (1803.046), so the attribution here; references below are for that larger title. This item also contains a list of "Books printed for, and sold by R. & J. Gray, booksellers and stationers, King-Street, Alexandria," which shows that the Clerk's Magazine was the sixth in a series of Alexandria imprints contracted from the three leading press offices there (Samuel Snowden, John Westcott Sr., and Peter Cottom & John A. Stewart) by the bookselling firm of Robert & John Gray; the preceding works were The Vocal Medley (1801.026); St. Leon: A Tale of the Sixteenth Century (1802.044); The Story of Tom Snell (1803.042); New Introduction to Reading (1803.044); and The Benevolent Jew (1803.045). The brothers Robert & John Gray conducted a successful bookstore in Alexandria from 1800 to 1808, when John retired from the business; Robert continued alone until 1814.
