English translation of Storia antica del Messico, originally published in Cesena (northwestern Italy) in 1780 & 1781, with the first edition of Cullen's translation issued in London in 1787. Shaw & Shoemaker reported that this Richmond variant was a reissue of the sheets used in an 1804 Philadelphia edition (S&S 6034), printed for bookseller Thomas Dobson by Budd & Bartram, with a title page crediting Prichard as publisher and Richmond as place of issue; he regularly employed such trade practices to supply his Virginia store, drawing on associations he developed during his early years as a bookseller in Philadelphia; although printed there, this item was clearly manufactured for sale in Virginia, and so is included in this Index.
