The last gathering of this item was issued separately (1803.047) under title of "Catalogue of law books, for sale, by R. and J. Gray" that makes up the first two pages of that segment. That gathering also reports "Books printed for, and sold by R. & J. Gray, booksellers and stationers, King-Street, Alexandria." The list shows that this title was the sixth in a series of Alexandria-produced works contracted from the three leading press offices there (Samuel Snowden, John Westcott Sr., and Peter Cottom & John A. Stewart) by the bookselling firm of Robert & John Gray; the preceding works were The Vocal Medley (1801.026); St. Leon: A Tale of the Sixteenth Century (1802.044); The Story of Tom Snell (1803.042); New Introduction to Reading (1803.044); and The Benevolent Jew (1803.045). The brothers Robert & John Gray conducted a successful bookstore in Alexandria from 1800 to 1808, when John retired from the business; Robert continued alone until 1814.
