     The complete title for this book is: THE TOWN AND COUNTRY MAGAZINE, Or, Universal Repository Of Knowledge, Instruction, and Entertainment.
      This booklet was published by Alexander Hamilton. According to E.W. Pitcher, in A Reconsideration Of Magazine Serials In The Town And Country Magazine, "Town and Country Magazine was an 18th century London based publication that featured tales of scandals and affairs between members of London's upper classes". The title was chosen from the fact that Hamilton possessed two offices, one at Clerkenwell (town), and one at Highgate (country). The magazine was published between 1769 and 1796.
