~ The Prophecy of Famine. A Scots Pastoral... Inscribed to John Wilkes, Esq; The fourth Edition. London: Printed for the author, and sold by G. Kearsly. 1763.

4to (245 × 185 mm), pp. [4], 28, with half-title, plus engraved frontispiece depicting a starving and ragged Scot.

Apparently the first edition to include the extraordinary engraved frontispiece. Though ESTC contains a note to the third edition record that some libraries report a plate this seems to be a confusion of editions.
