London: Printed for W. Hawes at the Rose in Ludgate-street, P. Gilbourne at the corner of Chancery-lane in Fleet-street, and W. Davis at the Black Bull in Cornhill, 1699. First Edition 
Octavo. [184] pages. First edition. Title within double line border. Text in double columns. A4, B8-M8. In a modern Cambridge panel-style binding. Wing E5. Washed. Lower margin extended in a number of leaves, rarely affecting text. The book must have been in a fire, charring the lower part of the pages, but luckily not affecting the text. A stain, starting around I6, and getting worse toward the end, in the lower right-hand margin of the book. For all the faults described, still a very good copy.
