Imprint lacks location of Bartgis & Willcocks press; Rink erroneously supplied Richmond as the site, when it was actually located in Winchester; error was corrected by Evans. Library of Congress copy seen by Evans was not found when sought for filming by the Early American Imprints Series, so was not filmed; copies reported in collections of the New York Historical Society, Boston Athenaeum, and American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia.
