A beautifully preserved copy in an attractive binding  of Defoe's "pseudo-Quaker rebuke to the Earl of Mar, the leader of the Jacobite rebels, making much of his violation of the Oath of Abjuration, pointing out the folly of his hopes of English support, and prophesying his defeat" (University of London Library-Senate House catalog note).

Moore reports six copies, of which I could confirm four still in the collections. World Cat lists four more, for a total of eight library holdings of the first edition.
