So obscure is this edition, that Paul Leicester Ford did not mention it in his bibliography of Gaine's press. Hugh Gaine ceased printing in 1800, although the bookshop continued to operate into 1804. According to newspaper notices in November of that year, the firm had recently dissolved and the shop's stock was sold. Also during this time, Gaine promoted the formation of professional book trade associations and book fairs.
