[frontis] pp 108 Almost certainly spurious account of the 'shipwreck and sufferings' of Mrs Eliza Bradley, supposedly autobiographical, but borrowed in large part from Captain James Riley's 1816 account of his capture and exploits on the 'coast of Barbary'. The second Boston edition of 1823 bound in quarter roan over marbled paper covered wooden boards, marbling heavily worn close to foreedge on upper board. Browning to paper internally though the crudely effective woodcut frontispiece is present and intact. Foxing throughout. Central four leaves of the first gathering loose. In the UK Copac locates British Library only.
