|Notes:||This work was originally published in two volumes, 1661-1665. It is rarely found complete, as most of the copies of vol. 2 were destroyed in the great fire of London. The very rare 1667 reprint consists of v. 1, pts. 1 & 2 of the original sheets with an added t.p. and new contents leaf.
On t.p. of pt. 2 the words "The second tome. The second part" should read "The first tome. The second part."
