Textual notes

The copy text is from The Second Edition Corrected, with Additions. The document that this text is based on can be found in the British Library, shelf number 1609/5380 or in facsimile on ECCO, Gale Document Number: CW115164330, ESTC: number T70830. 

I have provided a list of variants between the copy text and an example of the first edition, which I will refer to here as Q1. This copy can also be found on ECCO Gale Document Number: CB130875094, ESTC number: T70831 or at the British Library, shelf mark 164.m.31.


Where words have been changed from single to plural in the second edition, I have treated these changes as accidental variants.
