Following the death of Robert Morden in August 1703 there would have been a distribution of shareholding. Unfortunately, no record survives of these transactions. We can see from the new list of publishers on the title page that Thomas Cockerill also disposed of his shares, Ralph Smith retained his ownership and may well have expanded it. This edition was first advertised in the ‘Term Catalogues’ for Hilary in 1703/4 indicating a publication early in the year. Smith alone advertised the work in the ‘Daily Courant’ 9 March 1703/4. The title is entirely reset including now a reference to Robert Morden. The body of text however is a reissue of leftover sheets from the 1701 printing, complete with pagination errors. Both the 1701 and 1704 editions were issued in two formats, octavo and oblong quarto. However, in 1704 both formats were also issued with Ralph Smith named alone on the title page supporting the case that he expanded his ownership. The oblong quarto format is known by one example only at the Folger Library, Washington DC. This octavo issue is unrecorded although their is one other example in the Burden collection. The text is identical except for the ‘Address to the Reader’ which has “Their Humble Servants & c.” added at end. Also Hodson is incorrect in stating there are no alterations apart from the title page. The ‘List’ of notable people bound at the end is entirely renewed and expanded by a further fifty-one pages. Provenance: private English collection. Refer Chubb (1927) 125; refer Hodson (1984-97) 125; refer Shirley (2004) T.Mord 4b.
