A French phrase book by journalist Francis William Blagdon (1777-1818). All editions are institutionally scarce, with no copies of a first edition recorded, the earliest known a second from 1815. This 17th edition with a date of 1836 is apparently unrecorded, though an 1831 '17th edition' shows a handful of locations in Worldcat.
