- This imprint not found in any bibliographies. Bitting, p334 cites a 14th edition with no date. Oxford p78, cites the same 'suspicious' 14th with no date, by 'Elizabeth Moxon and Others' Printed and sold by Andrew Hambleton. MacLean p106, also cites Oxford's 14th and with the printers as Andrew Hambleton and H. and G. Mozely but dated 1800. Craig p642, confusingly cites 13th (on the Title page) but states it is really a 15th and a Mozely imprint of 1789. His next imprint is also a Mozely; a new edition of 1808. This copy is another 1800 imprint; to only be printed and sold by Mozely. That makes three copies of the 1800 edition, with two in the bibliographies and this one unrecorded.
