A seemingly unrecorded edition of this rare children's religious educational work, with the sole Copac record an 1814 printing held at York Minster, the notes on that holding giving a plausible first edition date of 1800. Worldcat also has no record of this 1803 printing, though it did see several editions in the United States. Beilby Porteus (1731-1809) held the bishopric of London from 1787 until his death.
