Notes

General notes:
Signatures: a4 b1 B-X8 Y2 [$4 signed].
First edition published 1764. Berkenhout says in his preface that he issued the second edition because William Curtis had told him his work was being plagiarised; the plagiarist in question may have been Driver, the lexicon in whose Pomona britanica (1788) incorporates passages in Berkenhout's wording.
On the title-page is a quotation in Hebrew letters from I Kings iv. 33.
Pages are unnumbered throughout.
Contents notes:

Provenance:
Signature in ink and short inscription (both crossed through) on front free endpaper: "J.W. Robson [?] / from C.S.H.[?]".
