Philadelphia, Bioren and Madan, .1796 (presumably a separate
issue of a portion of volume 8), with a MS. letter alluding to a
copy privately owned in Washington, D.C., as "the unique first
American edition of Shakespeare's Poems." The Library of Con-
gress knows nothing of such a separate issue.]

revised by Delius; it also presents a new arrangement (see p. 437
above), which may be based on his view of the Sonnets as im-
personal literary performances.
