In his original research, Cannon listed 4 different editions of this book:

  • I 1838
  • II 1839
  • IV 1899
  • V 1972

Since then he has carried out a more detailed investigation as other books have come to light. The results are soon to be published.

The present writer has originals of editions I, IV and V. There are two known 1st editions and one 2nd edition in private collections in New Zealand.

Edition IV was reviewed in the Aberdeen Journal 6 January 1899, page 2, column 8.
