This chapter moves away from academy life to present a series of publishing histories investigating the collaborative publication of educational works attributed to a single author. Doddridge’s Course of Lectures and ‘Lectures on Preaching’ are described, and the collective effort undertaken by Doddridge’s former students to ensure that certain parts of his educational system were made available in print is demonstrated using the correspondence of his widow, Mercy Doddridge. The chapter explores different attitudes to publishing among members of Doddridge’s circle and presents information about Dutch and French translations of Doddridge’s teaching materials. It shows that these printed lectures were not only of interest to dissenters but were used in other educational environments, further demonstrating the influence of dissenting educational modes on the English universities, colleges in America, and among Catholics.
