Note
Boston Public Library (Rare Books Department) copy bound in full, early calfskin panelled in blind and rebacked. The board edges are rolled in gilt and the spine is panelled and tooled in gilt with a red leather label. The armorial bookplate of Philip Yorke, Earl of Hardwicke, is present on the front pastedown. This copy belonged to Ben Jonson, whose motto, "Tanquam Explorator" is present at the head of the title page and whose autograph, "Sum Ben. Jonsoni" has been scraped off, but is still faintly visible opposite the printer's device on the same page. Notes in Jonson's hand are also present on pages 2, 3, and 284. The rest of the text is annotated throughout in different early hands, including what appears to be the autograph of Marquard Gude at the foot of the title page. Also housed with this copy are three slips of paper containing early manuscript notes in both Latin and Greek. Housed in a red cloth box built by Bayntun-Riviere.
