Published by Timberland to refute statements that his edition of The history of the proceedings of the House of Lords is only a copy of an imperfect Irish collection of debates, lately reprinted by John Torbuck. Cf. p. 3.
"Be careful to observe, that the only genuine edition of the History and proceedings of the House of Lords, from the Restoration to the end of the first session of the third parliament of his present Majesty King George II. is subscrib'd with my name on the back of the title page of the eighth volume, which I have enter'd in the Hall-Book of the Stationers Company, according to the Act of Parliament in that case made and provided. Ship-Yard, 1743." [Ebenezer Timberland] -- v. 8, p. [2]
