Often attributed to Defoe but apparently falsely and disputed by Furbank and Owens. There is a section that discusses Defoe by name and talks about his imprisonment (the source of his famous A Hymn to the Pillory), and the overall tone is faintly humorous, no doubt leading to the attribution. Disbound, slight soiling to title, slight foxing. (4), 44pp. ESTC T56994. Size: Folio. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Law & Criminal Studies; Antiquarian & Rare.
