TO THE READER
AS many of the quotations contained in the following Effay, are drawn from works of which there are various editions; it may not be improper, for the fake of verifying paffages, to defcribe thofe herein made ufe of. As my notes were collected at diftant times, and without any regard to publication, my manufcript did not fpecify the particular editions from which the quotations were made; except in fome inftances wherein the books ufed were not my own. Remembering this omiffion too late, I have ventured to givea defcription of thofe few books, which I judged moft liable to perplex the reader.
