A Pariotic [sic.] Song. Air. Anacreon in Heaven. [4] pp., pp. 1 and 4 blank. In the lower margins of pp. 2 and 3 appears the notation: (Adapd. & Arrd. by T. C. [Thomas Carr]). Code Mark (Tssb.) in the lower left margin of pp. 2 and 3, and Plate Mark (Pl. 1) and (Pl. 2), respectively, in the lower right margin of the same pages.

This is the first publication in any form under the title of THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER, as the poem was previously known as DEFENCE OF FORT M'HENRY. The principal identification of this edition is the absence of the first letter "t" in the word "Pa[t]riotic" in the caption title.
