A piracy of the 12th edition (3rd London edition), not signed by Hoyle and Osborne as are genuine copies. The piracy nevertheless retains the notice on the verso of the title that "No copies of this book are genuine, but what are signed by Edmond Hoyle and Thomas Osborne". Levy, in his Descriptive Bibliography of Edmond Hoyle, notes three printings of this forgery but does not distinguish among them.
