Includes an introduction with footnotes by the editor which examines the surviving evidence for the history of the Dicey family and discusses the transmission of cheap print to North America

This catalogue of 1764 was probably larger than any catalogue categorising and listing cheap maps, images and texts that had up to then appeared in the British Isles. It is an important source for the study of the lower end of the eighteenth-century book and publishing trade
