Notes: Preface dated Kentish Town, 24 Apr 1820. OCLC attributes to both John Hefford and Mrs A. Yossy. The possibility of an involvement by Ann Yossy also gains some circumstantial support from a letter of hers to the Royal Literary Fund belonging to 1833, which mentions '2 Clasic Tales' amongst her published works (see RLF 16: 534, item 11). ECB lists as Theban and Carthaginian Tales. For the general issue of Yossy's authorship of fiction of this period, see also EN2 Update 4.
