Watson in Notes and queries, 11th ser., v. 9, p. 121, etc. especially p. 184-185; Bleackley, p. 116-117, 437; H.S. Ashbee, Index librorum prohibitorum.

Responsibility: printed at the private press in Great George-street, Westminster, in 1763, and now reproduced in fac-simile from a copy believed to be unique, to which are added, Epigrams and miscellaneous poems now first collected, by the Right Hon. John Wilkes ... Preceded by an introductory narrative of the extraordinary circumstances connected with the prosecution of the author in the House of lords, digested and compiled from contemporary writers.
