There appears to be a confusion in Swem over whether this was a publically-funded imprint or not. In entry for this item (8320), he reports an order to print this title on March 13, and a voucher for payment on April 20, when this item was not entered for copyright until October 22, 1808 by Seaton Grantland; yet in the succeeding entry (8321), he reports that next title, Military Tactics or The Soldier's Companion (1808.022), was a private publication. and such can seem to be the case as Winston retained the copyright, having entered the title with the federal court for Virginia on April 8, 1808, a date consistent with payment for the other title; these reports appear simple transpositions of the data he recorded for each title, both being printed by Grantland. Both are listed in this Index with that apparent reversal corrected. The plates herein are not signed; however, Grantland had his younger brother Fleming, a well-trained engraver and copper=plate printer, working in his office from at least January 1807 until the early spring of 1809; so it is almost certain he produced the plates herein.
