This British volume is part of the archive of the McLoughlin Brothers firm, indicating that they were well aware of their competition in Europe.  As early as 1872, McLoughlin Brothers promised to offer copies of British books at lower cost, undercutting their competition on price.  Although copyright laws were on the books in New York in this period, they were not widely enforced so pirated copies were common.  McLoughlin produced an 8 page edition of Sing a Song of Six Pence in 1871.
