Notes: Attribution - editions not identified, numerous produced from 1783. STN traded in a (n.p., 1783) edition, probably printed by Mourer in Lausanne, from whom the STN sourced the work after he sent a circular advertising it 15 April 1783 (MS1186, f.74). They also traded in a (London, 1784) edition after Fauche-Borel Catalogue (1787). It has not always been possible from STN manuscripts to isolate which transactions relate to which editions.
