Manuscript copy of printed version published in Amsterdam in 1632; it was also translated into English in 1657 by J. Rowland under the title An history of the constancy of nature. Jonston argues against the idea of a decline in nature, drawing from many and varied sources. Marginalia include references to authors including Seneca, Tacitus, Pliny the Younger, Aristotle, Boethius, Suetonius, Cicero, Livy, Herodotus, Joannes Barclaius, Jean Bodin, and Erasmus, as well as various verses from the Bible, mostly from the Old Testament. Within the text itself, more famous names appear, such as Copernicus, Brahe, Kepler, Melanchthon, Euripides, Homer, Vergil, Epictetus, the Gracchi, Pompey the Great, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, John the Evangelist, Cleopatra, Francis I of France, and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. The work is introduced by two quotes, one from book of Pliny the Younger's letter to Caninius (6.21), the other from book 3.55 of Tacitus's Annals. Within the text are numerous quotes from Boethius, lines 585-591 of book six of Vergil's Aeneid, and a poem, Regiarum rationum apud Parisios patroni epigrammatum libro primo, by Stephanus Paschasius
