Pittsfield: [1811]. 32pp, sewn, untrimmed, browned, portion of gummed label on blank portion of title page, Very Good. An early legal dispute, as well as an unusual Pittsfield MA imprint, with an opinion by Judge Parker on whether Skinner's sureties were liable for his looting of the State treasury.
