Ill. = frontis. Foxon, I42 First published in 1697.’ Foxon 141 (1713 2nd Ed.) ‘Put here for convenience for though Tate’s preface to the 1st Ed. is here, he did not contribute to this 2nd Ed.’ The Author’s preface states that the poem was ‘the issue of my more juvenile Minutes ...’ going on to explain that he submitted it ‘to the censure of Mr Tate ...’ Tate’s preface begins ‘The copy of this poem being sent to me from the unknown author ...’ Wing is alone in attributing this work to Tate.

¶ Apparently Four Numbers were issued. ESTC T115515 ‘Attributed to Joseph Addison (cf. DNB). With a half-title. At end of imprint in square brackets: Price 6d. Published in response to Richard Steele’s ’The Plebeian’; cf. also ’The Patrician’, by ’One who is neither a knight, nor a member of the House of Commons’, which is sometimes attributed to Robert, Viscount Molesworth. Although numbered, suggesting it was published serially, the presentation appears to ape that of ’The Plebeian’ and also suggests that these were simply numbered tracts published in response to ’The Plebeian’.
