Notes: 'Introductory Letter', pp. [3]11, dated 'Harrowgate, Oct. 16th, 1780', states the fictional 'Mr. Wilson is our author', but clearly indicates actual female authorship. 'Notice by the Editor' draws attention both to the date of the Introductory Letter and to the fact that the MS 'has been in the Editor's possession ever since that period, which is now over forty years'. Dated in some catalogues as 1819, but ECB lists as July 1820. On ABu copy (SB.82379.Kin.f) 'date 1820' has been added in hand at foot of t.p. OCLC gives date as 1819, but no direct evidence of the copies it records having a dated title-page.
DBF record no: 1820A040.
