Provisions proposed For the rendering every man In this view amenable, a set of
provisions to the following purport might be of

Printer's name &c to be given. Let every man be punishable who circulates to the input Permit no Book or printed paper
any printed paper without or engraving to be sold that has not a this in the Title page a Printer's name

you will certainly prevent the from being sold selling of it.
