Notes:

The scarce third, expanded edition of a work originally published as 'Essays, morall and theological' in 1609 and then under this title in 1629. Daniel Tuvill (d. 1660) published several works, often dedicated to members of prominent families such as the Montagus or Spencers; most of them 'were conduct-book literature inspired by the works of Francis Bacon, Montaigne, and Stefano Guazzo, among others, and were heavily reliant on secondary reading for their citations of classical and patristic works' (ODNB). ESTC locates only 4 copies outside the UK (Folger, Harvard, Huntington, NYU), and 7 copies at 5 locations (BL, Dulwich, Oxford, Thomas Plume's, and Private Collection) within.
