Single half-sheet, verso blank, with blank subscription receipt form at foot dated '[ ] Day of [ ] 1797'. 'The Work consists of a number of Airs ... revised and collated by Mr. Hullmandel, who has very liberally undertaken the Work, and caused them to be engraved at his own expence.' Subscriptions (half a guinea, to include engraved portrait of the authoress after Ozias Humphrey) were taken in by Nicol and Edwards in Pall Mall, Debrett in Piccadilly, and Hookham in Bond Street.
