The Politick Wife etc. Apart from the no imprint version in the Bodl it was printed in the mid 18thc at Bow Church Yard, London (Harvard Library)and Dicey and Marshall had it in their catalogue same period. Roxburghe Ballads Vol 8 p183 mentions a version printed by Evans, London c1780 and there are a couple of copies in the Douce Collection although I don't think these appear on the Bodl site.
