Two issues of Daniel Isaac Eaton’s weekly journal, which ran for a period of several months over two years. No. 43, which contains an index as pp. 7-8, was the last issue, and consists entirely of verse praising the French Revolution and apparently mocking with irony the British constitution.

Rare, full runs extremely so, ESTC noting the BL and University of California only.
