pp. 24. Original paper wrappers, disbound from a pamphlet volume, old and faint damp-marking in the top inner corner from page 9 onwards, uncut, and apart from the damping, a nice copy, with the book-label of the BIBLIOTHECA RENESSIANA on the verso of the front wrap and a numbered label on the recto.

*OCLC locates one copy only, Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin - Preussischer Kulturbesitz [n.252851249]- no copy on COPAC. In this, the Revolutionary year, it is of little surprise to hear of a fracas in Spa, involving armed militia, much verbal abuse and rage. The author of this little piece was an eye-witness and gives a detailed account.
