Published originally by T. Maiden in 1799, and reissued or reprinted by Vernor and Hood in 1802, this third edition is recorded by COPAC only in the British Library copy. It has a different frontispiece from the original, the engraving in that being after John Thurstan. The printer here, following a setting copy of an earlier edition, has not allowed in the pagination for the publisher’s Advertisement leaf, which is conjugate with the title-page, the first gathering consisting thereby of seven leaves, A7 being a single inset. The last gathering, ‘K’, consists of eight leaves, K1 and K2 being a conjugate pair.
