London: W.J. and J. Richardson, 1803. Small 8vo, pp. [8], 139, [1]; mid 20th century calf-backed marbled boards; very good and sound. Lacking the 6 folding plates. Alphabetically arranged throughout. Uncommon. Coleman notes Christopher Stray's Slang in the Nineteenth Century (Bristol, 2002) where it is speculated that the author may have been William Paley, son of the moral philosopher of the same name. See Coleman, II, pp. 245-51; Vancil, p. 100; Burke, p. 134: "Contemporary expressions, with scholarly etymological 'notes and quotes' which ramble on delightfully." Item #34016
