20 Euphrosyne. The chaplet of chearfulness, and Company Keeper's Assistant. A select collection of songs For the Entertainment of the Bacchanal, Lover, Buck, Sportsman, Free Mason, Loyalist, Soldier, and Sailor: ...
Dublin: printed by and for James Hoey, junior, 1763. 
Duodecimo. In two parts. I: [ii], ii, 8, 132, ivpp.; II: 271pp., plus Index. Contemporary calf. ESTC T218259. Only copy at the Bodleian; but has only Part One. This is the only recorded copy of Part Two. The Euphrosyne is quite an enigma. There are two editions of the work, both printed by James Joey, Jr., in Dublin. Oxford libraries seem to be the only holders of these two books. Even though they hold a complete copy of the first edition (in two parts), they have only the first part of the second edition, which ends on p. 132. However, the second edition also has a second part and follows the same pattern as in the first edition. In both editions, the pagination is continuous. They also pretty much follow each other verbatim (there are some minor differences). Following the text of both editions in ECCO, I had this copy of the book completed in good facsimile, which lacks three leaves at the end of part II before the Index, by following the text in the existing Oxford copies. Page 258 of Part II of the first edition is titled 'The Company Keeper's Assistant. A Collection of Toasts, Sentiments, and Hob-Nobs (it is followed by four classes of Hob-Nobs). Page 1 of Part I of the second edition repeats the same heading and is followed by the first two classes of Hob-Nobs. At the bottom of page 8, a note reads: Having added largely in this second edition to the collection of sentiments, there is not room for the third and fourth class in this part, which were taken into the first edition; we must therefore refer the reader to the second part of this volume for the Third Class, or, 'Two faces under a Hood;' and also for the fourth class, being the Hob-Nobs. The two classes of sentiments necessarily omitted in this first part, are considerably augmented in the second part. There is no real indication that the second edition was greatly augmented. I used the third and fourth class entries from the first edition, but had to delete an extraneous passage, so that there is a lacuna in one page. The page numbers in the facsimile pages were changed to match the text of the second edition.
