The first American printing of any of Cadalso's works. This edition was created specifically for American students, "con notas y acentos de prosodia, al uso de los estudiantes en las academias, colegios y universidades de los Estados Unidos de la America Setentrional." Sales was an instructor of French and Spanish at Harvard, and his edition has accents on the emphasized syllable of each word even is such accents are usually absent.
