London : printed for Sherwood, Jones, and Co., [Shackell and Arrowsmith, printer], 1824.
First edition, one of many attempts at the "Hermit" novel which observes the scenery, manners, and morals of a given time and place. This is quite a successful example, with one critic describing it as "superior in delineation of character, display of original wit, sarcastic humour, interwoven with original story, productive of the happiest moral." - Garside et al, English Novel, 1824-61; Block, English Novel.
