Notes

The Beaconsfield edition, number 5 of 1,000 copies. Burke's writings were first collected together within his lifetime by Walker King and French Laurence, "who had assisted him with the Annual Register, the impeachment, and other concerns. Publication commenced in 1795, and concluded many years later in 1827. A number of Burke's less finished writings and drafts appeared alongside those which were a recognized part of his canon" (ODNB). The text used in the present edition is from Rivington's 16 volume set published between 1801 and 1827
