The title page within the pamphlet has the date of 1822 and the imprint we list above; the outer wrapper over card stock has the date of 1826, same address, and Caleb Bartlett as publisher. The printer Caleb Bartlett was at 78 Bowery St. as early as 1822, where he printed a number of titles as The Bowery Circulating Library. James Hardie's 1827 The Description of the City of New York has Bartlett at 76 Bowery St. in that year. "Bartlett printed and published his own books, while also selling almanacs, fancy papers, and playing cards." - graphicarts.princeton dot.edu. The back panel of the wrapper advertises, besides books and stationary, "Blank and Visiting Cards, Glass, Sand and Emory Paper manufactured and sold wholesale and retail as above."
WorldCat lists only one copy of this title as published by Bartlett, that being a copy from 1832 with one location. Interestingly, it also has the outer wrapper date of 1826.
John Brown (1722-1787) Scottish Presbyterian minister of the Associate Synod. Brown “was entirely self-taught: by great perseverance he acquired a considerable knowledge of Latin and Greek; with Hebrew he became critically conversant. He could also read and translate the French, Italian, German, Arabic, Persian, Syriac, and Ethiopic; but all these were subordinate to his favorite study of divinity, in which he became eminently skilled, as well as in history, both ecclesiastical and civil. He passed a long life as Professor of Divinity to the Succession Church of Scotland, and minister of a large congregation at Haddington.” – Allibone. Brown is best remembered to day for his Self-Interpreting Bible, and his Bible Dictionary.
