Based largely on the evidence of Richard Johnson's Day-books, M.J.P. Weedon assumes Cooper is a pseudonym of Johnson's (cf. her Richard Johnson and the successors to John Newbery); Osborne Coll. agrees with her arguments, calling them "reasonable and valid" (I, p. 166). However, S. Roscoe is inclined to reject this assumption, pointing out that "[a]n examination of the Day-book entries, and of the bks there referred to, does not reveal a single instance in which one can feel certain, beyond all doubt, that Johnson was the real author" (John Newbery, p. 190).
