Notes: Frank (Item 330) notes the bibliographical confusion over Miss Pilkington and Mary Pilkington, listing this as by the latter. He comments 'The fact that The Novice bears the signature, "Matthew Moral, esq.", suggests the soberly didactic direction which Mrs Pilkington gives to her rewriting of Mrs Radcliffe's The Italian' (p. 283). Mrs Mary Pilkington (17661839), the prolific author of children's books, was evidently a different figure from the shadowy 'Miss Pilkington' who wrote four novels for the Minerva Press, ending with The Accusing Spirit (EN2 1802: 54).
