Notes

Sometimes attributed to John Newbery, who was the first to publish it and other stories especially intended for children. Cf. Dict. of national biog.

The only known copy, held by the American Antiquarian Society, is mutilated, with loss of date in imprint. Another issue (not in Evans), 'Sold also by E. Batelle,' has imprint date: MDCCLXXXVI. Mistakenly dated 1787 by Evans, who presumably based his entry on an advertisement.

Microform version available in the Readex Early American Imprints series.
