Two reprints were published in 1865, one edited by Henry B. Dawson, with imprint: Morrisania, N.Y., 1865 (xxii, 201 p. ; 29 cm); and another, printed by H.O. Houghton and published in Providence, R.I. by Sidney S. Rider, with the original imprint on the title page (xvi, 147 p. ; 30 cm). The latter has frequently been confused with the actual 1829 edition; as of Oct. 2012, it appears that all online versions purporting to represent that edition actually reproduce the Rider edition.
Copyright 8 May 1829 by Thomas Dring Gladding (nephew of Thomas Dring).
