About this Item

Small folio in fours, , 329, pages. Contemporary blind-tooled speckled calf, edges stained red, later spine label and date in gilt, short split in upper joint, and a little wear to extremities, but a very good, crisp, unpressed copy. "The publisher's claim 'corrected and much enlarged by the Author' was fully justified. New chapters and paragraphs were freely inserted and some excisions were made. Many technical terms and quotations in the original languages were dropped, rhetorical questions were altered to positive statements, and small improvements were made throughout. Of the [new] marginal annotations some were by the author, but others, printed in smaller type, were by an admirer of the work, who was also responsible for the Alphabetical Table. This is made plain in the Advertisement signed N.N. on B1b. Wilkin suggested that this admirer may have been the Rev. Mr. Whitefoot of Norwich, who was a close friend of the author and used the same initials in a manuscript discourse ," Keynes Described by Wilkin in 1835 and Keynes in 1968 as "the handsomest as to typography" of any edition of this title, Keynes also notes: "the second edition of 1650 . . . besides being better printed and produced, is considerably less common than its predecessor.".
