Goadby, at Sherbone, [c.1754-5]. 12mo, not bound, stitched as issued; pp. iv, 43, [1 (advertisements)]. One of two undated editions, both scarce. The anonymous author presents his work to correct 'Old-stile' dating (the calendar reform of 1752 having adjusted dates by 11 days) and because other works were 'deficient in Matter and Method'.
