NOT IN FLAKE;  presumably very rare and unrecorded in Mormon bibliographies. First published in London, 1855, this classic anti-Mormon potboiler was quickly translated and published in several foreign languages: Danish, 1855-6; French, 1856; German, 1856; Swedish, 1857, and as we now see here, in Hungarian, 1858.  See Flake 9585-92 for the non-English editions except for the one now discovered here.
