Notes:

"The title-page announces the termination of my authorial existence, which took place on March 1st, 1791"--P. [3] (1st group). The statement in the title "the late Thomas Pennant" refers to the author's intent to stop writing and publishing, as of 1 March 1791, as explained in the preface. However, in spite of this pledge, Pennant continued to write and to publish until his death in 1798, and several works were also issued posthumously.

The portrait frontispiece, engraved by W. Ridley after a painting by Thos. Gainsborough, was issued separately (see p. [6], 1st group), and is not always present in copies of this autobiography.

The plate "Part of the inside of the church of Fountains Abby" is signed by Moses Griffith.

Contents: Literary life -- [Appendices numbered 1 through 8, p. 47-144]: Of the Patagonians -- Free thoughts on the militia laws -- A letter from a Welsh freeholder to his representative -- A letter on the ladies affectation of the military dress -- On imprudency of conduct in married ladies -- Flintshire petition in 1779 -- A letter to a member of parliament on mail coaches -- Of the loyal associations of the present year, in Flintshire.
