Notes: Publisher's catalog, "Books printed for and sold by William Taylor, at the sign of the Ship in Pater-Noster-Row": pages [365]-[368].
"Printing was divided among Henry Parker (sig. B-G, O-S), Hugh Meere (sig. T-2A), and William Bowyer (sig. H-N). See Keith Maslen, ''The printers of Robinson Crusoe,' in An early London printing house at work: studies in the Bowyer ledgers (New York, 1993)."--ESTC.
H.C. Hutchins, in "Robinson Crusoe and its printing 1719-1731" (1925), distinguished two "issues" (that is, editions--different settings of type) among copies with this "third edition" title page, which he designated "3c" and "3T"; a note by the Bancroft Library identifies a mixture of sheets from these two settings in their copy. Given the continous reprinting, by various printers, of sheets of the 1719 "editions" and the need to bind complete copies with a single current title page, such mixture may be common.
