The original title was published in England in 1808 in three volumes. This is the first American edition. Howes in his bibliography, U.S.Iana, states that this title is: "Interesting in spite of its snarling asperity and numerous lies." Clark in his bibliography of Travels in The Old South, believed that this title was "one of the least acceptable American Travel Accounts" as the author "realized that a book devoted largely to the condemnation of Americans would be profitable." He goes on to say that despite Ashe's "oblique observations" he "was favorably impressed with the Ohio and Mississippi valleys, and his descriptions are generally credible." (Howes, A-352; Clark, II, 134; Sabin, 2180)
