A rare edition of a rare reference pamphlet, first published 1697 and reprinted several times within a few years with varying edition statements. ESTC records a 'second edition' assigned a date of [1701?], a 'sixth edition' with a Glasgow imprint dated 1701, and more than one 'fifth edition' of around 1701, as well as a 'seventh' dated 1783 (among others).
