An imperfect copy of this edition (wanting the imprint) held by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania is recorded by Bristol (Bristol B3297, Shipton and Mooney 42195). Bristol mistakenly records the imprint "Newport, S. Southwick [1770]," evidently based on the 8 pages edition printed by Southwick (Bristol B3298, Shipton and Mooney 42196).
