    -- another ed. London: printed for [----], [c.1787].
    1. The 1753 work could have been written by Penelope Bradshaw. The phrase in the title- page about teeth is identical to the one employed in another 1753 work; see under earlier entry: BRADSHAW, Penelope, Bradshaw's family companion.
    2. The only known reference to the 1787 edition is given by Hazlitt, p. 177. If the assumption in note above is correct the probable date of publication is nearer 1757 than '1787'.
