 I have recently acquired an edition published by John and Charles Mozley of Derby. ​ It is undated, but the earliest dated work of theirs I have so far found is 1849, before which the firm appears to have been Henry Mozley & Sons, with at least one other copy of Walker dated 1842, while a work dated 1863 has the addition of Joseph Masters & Son.  A further complication,​ however, is that the 1842 edition has ‘A New Edition’ on the title page, suggesting that it may be the Nelson edition, while this printing has nothing. ​ The only other edition with nothing specific is the 3rd Edition reprint {[[background#​the_editions_from_1822_to_1829|See 2.4]]}, and this is not another of those, having the Advertisement to the Fourth Edition, as in the Tegg New Edition {[[background#​a_new_edition,​_carefully_revised_and_corrected:​_tegg_s_editions|See 2.6]]} and the Glasgow Edition {[[background#​the_glasgow_printing|See 2.9]]}, as well as the later reference under ‘Denigrate’ {[[background#​the_stereotype_edition|See 2.2]][[background#​the_editions_from_1822_to_1829| & 2.4]]}, but there is no obvious link in layout with any of the other editions of Tegg, Davis or Young. ​ Perhaps most significantly,​ it has the letters I/J and U/V separated completely, something otherwise found only in Young (1849) at this assumed period {[[background#​the_separation_of_i_and_j,​_u_and_v_in_alphabetical_ordering|See 3.3]]}. ​ It has a portrait, found, so far, in no other copy, ([[portraits#​fig.28]]). ​ Facially it seems to be somewhere between the Heath engraving and the later Tegg but not identical with either, while the coat is unbuttoned as in Tegg, but with five buttons visible on the waistcoat. ​ Below it is a facsimile signature, which looks as if it has been copied, by hand, from the one in the Caxton Edition. ​  ​{[[background#​Portraits of John Walker|See also 3.10 below]]}\\ I have recently acquired an edition published by John and Charles Mozley of Derby. ​ It is undated, but the earliest dated work of theirs I have so far found is 1849, before which the firm appears to have been Henry Mozley & Sons, with at least one other copy of Walker dated 1842, while a work dated 1863 has the addition of Joseph Masters & Son.  A further complication,​ however, is that the 1842 edition has ‘A New Edition’ on the title page, suggesting that it may be the Nelson edition, while this printing has nothing. ​ The only other edition with nothing specific is the 3rd Edition reprint {[[background#​the_editions_from_1822_to_1829|See 2.4]]}, and this is not another of those, having the Advertisement to the Fourth Edition, as in the Tegg New Edition {[[background#​a_new_edition,​_carefully_revised_and_corrected:​_tegg_s_editions|See 2.6]]} and the Glasgow Edition {[[background#​the_glasgow_printing|See 2.9]]}, as well as the later reference under ‘Denigrate’ {[[background#​the_stereotype_edition|See 2.2]][[background#​the_editions_from_1822_to_1829| & 2.4]]}, but there is no obvious link in layout with any of the other editions of Tegg, Davis or Young. ​ Perhaps most significantly,​ it has the letters I/J and U/V separated completely, something otherwise found only in Young (1849) at this assumed period {[[background#​the_separation_of_i_and_j,​_u_and_v_in_alphabetical_ordering|See 3.3]]}. ​ It has a portrait, found, so far, in no other copy, ([[portraits#​fig.28]]). ​ Facially it seems to be somewhere between the Heath engraving and the later Tegg but not identical with either, while the coat is unbuttoned as in Tegg, but with five buttons visible on the waistcoat. ​ Below it is a facsimile signature, which looks as if it has been copied, by hand, from the one in the Caxton Edition. ​  ​{[[background#​Portraits of John Walker|See also 3.10 below]]}\\
-I have located what appears to be the family on various censuses. ​ That of 1841 shows the parents, Henry and Jane Mozley, living at Friar Gate, St Werburgh, Derby, with their children John, born 1806, Charles, born 1811, Anne, also 1811, Maria, born 1816, and Fanny, born 1821, together with a number of servants. ​ There may also have been another son, Thomas, who became a clergyman. ​ In 1851 John was probably the person listed as a visitor to William and Mary Greaves, who appear to have run a hotel in Matlock Bath.  John is given as '​annuitant'​. ​ By 1861 he is married, to Jemima, and has five sons and a daughter. ​ They live at 101 Friar Gate, St Werburgh, Derby, and John's occupation is publisher. ​ In 1871 he is living with just his wife and servants, a printer and publisher, still at Friar Gate.  It seems possible that he died in 1872, and jemima ​the same year.+I have located what appears to be the family on various censuses. ​ That of 1841 shows the parents, Henry and Jane Mozley, living at Friar Gate, St Werburgh, Derby, with their children John, born 1806, Charles, born 1811, Anne, also 1811, Maria, born 1816, and Fanny, born 1821, together with a number of servants. ​ There may also have been another son, Thomas, who became a clergyman. ​ In 1851 John was probably the person listed as a visitor to William and Mary Greaves, who appear to have run a hotel in Matlock Bath.  John is given as '​annuitant'​. ​ By 1861 he is married, to Jemima, and has five sons and a daughter. ​ They live at 101 Friar Gate, St Werburgh, Derby, and John's occupation is publisher. ​ In 1871 he is living with just his wife and servants, a printer and publisher, still at Friar Gate.  It seems possible that he died in 1872, and Jemima ​the same year.
