The work is sometimes attributed to William Upcott.
"Mr. [Frederic] Shoberl proceeded to assure me, in the presence of his son, that the work was written by [John] Watkins as far as the letter F -- that some dispute with the publishers then arose -- that the materials were thereofore handed over to himself -- and that he completed the work as it now appears." -- Bolton Corney, in Notes & queries, 1st ser., v. 11 (1855) p. 34.
