Item Description:Caption title on p.3: A letter, &c. - Dated on p. 20: London, St. James' Place, 28th May 1798. - English Short Title Catalog, W26911. - Evans, 33929. - Reproduction of original from Library of Congress. - There is a great deal of uncertainty about the place of publication of this item. It is listed by Evans, but without a place of publication. DLC and other libraries assign it to London. It is related by its author, caption title, and contents to 'An account of the late revolution in Geneva', with imprint: "Philadelphia: published by Francis C. King, no.42, Market-Street, 1798". There are only four recorded works with that imprint, all dated 1798, three of them by D'Ivernois, and the fourth one also related to Swiss affairs. The author, in the 'Account' expresses the wish that his work might circulate in France. All this might point to a possible fictitious imprint. Typographical evidence, however, is not inconsistent with American printing of the period. Further evidence is needed
