Notes

The issue with separate pagination across the two volumes - evidently a corrected reissue, with pagination errors rectified and the Addenda incorporated into the first volume; the index of vol. 1 has also been amended to remove references to the Addenda and a previous, cancelled index. The ESTC entry for this issue locates only 5 copies against over 60 of the other issue.
