Earlier published by Bell, with the 1771-1772 edition of Blackstone's Commentaries on the laws of England, under title: Interesting Appendix to Sir William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England. Each part has a special title page, dated 1773. "This is the third edition of An Interesting Appendix to Blackstone's Commentaries, with a new general title. Pages 97-119 of The Case of the Late Election, and the title page, prefaces, and pages 1-4, of Furneaux's Letters were reprinted for this edition, which otherwise is the same as the second edition" Evans. This edition is far less common than the 1773 edition. Blackstone's work is considered the definitive pre-Revolutionary source on the Common Law, helping to define the concepts of personal rights and the relationship between a citizen and the government.
