Footnotes

  • A rare example of seventeenth century printing at York. The verso of the flyleaf, the verso of the title-page and the final blank are filled with a diatribe against Quakers, in a contemporary hand. It includes the naming of Samuel Cator, who "went to Bed to John Everard wife when they travelled together to propogate quakerism", and George Smith and Stephen Crisp who did much the same.
