Notes

First published 1704, this is the sixth edition as edited by Edward Wells (1667-1727), a clergyman and prolific producer of educational texts on subjects religious, scientific, and geographical, many of them adopted by schools. It is a scarce edition: ESTC locates two copies in the UK (NLS & Bodleian) plus two in Canada (UBC, Western Ontario) and one in the USA (Kansas).
