4to (262 × 210 mm), pp. iv, 14,  advertisement leaf; disbound.
First edition: a popular work which enjoyed a number of reprints. ‘We consider this as the best poem that hath been published for some time past … the offspring of genius, which shines forth among the late nameless and numberless productions of the press … The Wreath of Fashion is an elegant satire, chiefly levelled at the false taste of sentimental poetry in all its branches’ (Monthly Review). Jackson, p. 68.
