~ The Diaboliad: a Poem. Dedicated to the worst Man in His Majesty’s Dominions. Also, the Diabo-lady: or, a Match in Hell. [Dublin]: London: printed: and Dublin reprinted. 1777.

8vo (172 × 100 mm), pp. 97, [1], with half-title; names of anonymous subjects occasionally added in (?slightly later) manuscript; modern boards.

First Dublin edition. ‘The Diabo-Lady’, which is generally thought not to be by Combe, has a separate sub title and half-title. One of two Dublin issues of the same year, this one is distinguished by a colon after ‘Diaboliad’ on the title page and the 'D' of London directly above the 'I' of Dublin. Jackson, p. 52; ESTC calls for plates.
