Note
  • Primarily a pastiche of previous published material and gossip. Charles Wilson is believed to be a pseudonym, probably of John Oldmixon. Cf. Edmund Gosse's Life of William Congreve, p. viii, etc
  • Divided into two parts, the 1st of which is not so numbered and the 2nd of which has only caption title: Memoirs, &c., part II
  • The publisher may be bookseller Edmund Curll, with whose 1730 ed. of Mr. Congreve's last will and testament this work is often found bound, as here
  • The last 2 leaves are an index to the work and to a different ed. of Congreve's will and testament, giving further grounds for believing that Curll is the publisher and that he issued the two works together
  • Signatures: A-H8, 2A-K8
