Sorry, I was posting from a mobile so citing was not practical. See:
"A Treatise on the theory and practice of Seamanship", Richard Hall Gower, 1808, p. v-vi.
"In justice to the Author, it becomes necessary for him to state, that during his late voyage to India, Mr. Steel*, a bookseller, of Union-row, Little Tower-hill, republished nearly the whole of the 2d, 3d, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th chapters of the first edition of this work, in a voluminous Compilation termed, "Elements and Practice of Rigging and Seamanship." However illiberal such treatment must appear to the truly generous mind, the Author Would the more freely forgive Mr. Steel had he not* by artfully endeavouring to evade the piracy, been guilty of such misrepresentation, as has a tendency to bring his professional knowledge in question. Several deviations of this sort are contained in the 2d volume, 4to, of Mr. Steel's work, and are produced to shew that the Author has just reason for complaining."
