4to., self wrappers, (4)pp. Some browning with slight wear to outer edge but o/w an about fine copy of a delicate item. There seems to be some differences about the actual printing date of this Act. While Lande 864 gives 1794, Fleming 21 gives 1803. Fleming notes “On 19 March 1803 two hundred copies of each of six acts were ordered printed. Four have been located and can, on the basis of physical evidence, be matched to this documentation and recorded as 1803 imprints rather than 1794, 1796, and 1797.”
