  • Evans entry 17021 describes the Library of Congress copy of the present edition, but mistakenly ascribes it to the Philadelphia press of David C. Claypoole. The entry is listed among entries for 1780, but the presence of the footnote citing the 1781 ordinance is noted. Claypoole did print an edition of the Instructions in 1780; copies are reportedly held by the New England Historic Genealogical Society and the John Carter Brown Library
