Notes : According to Henry Spencer Ashbee, the texts published by J.C. Hotten for his Library Illustrative of Social Progress, in 1872, were originally published by G. Peacock around 1777. A text indicates the date 1761 on its title page, another 1785, so the true first publication date is uncertain. This forth edition refers to the Confessions of Rousseau which indicates in was written after 1782, the year of their publication, or 1783, the date of the first English translation.
Our copy is most probably a reprint from the early 20th c. and reproduce the original title page : "The 4th edition, with considerable additions. London, Printed for G[eorge] Peacock, No.66 Drury Lane".
