~ THE CURATE, an elegiac Poem. By **** *******. London: Printed for T. Becket... 1802.

4to (260 × 212 mm), pp. iv, 16; small dark waterstain in the gutter at head; disbound.

Sole edition. ‘As considerable Interest has been excited by the attention given lately in Parliament to the situation of the Inferior Clergy, the Author of the following Elegy judges it not improper to endeavour to awaken the public mind still more to a sense of the condition of that useful body of men, which during the lapse of more than a century has received no material amelioration, while every other situation in society has experienced progressive improvement; from whose exertions, notwithstanding numberless and most powerful obstacles, much essential benefit has been derived to their Country’ (Preface). Not in Jackson; very rare: OCLC locates the British Library copy only, to which COPAC adds those at the University of London and Bodley.
