Footnotes

  • VERY SCARCE, ESTC recording only 2 copies. The first part is a translation of Der bösen Weiber Zuchtschül, a dialogue concerning the conduct of women. Part 2 (beginning on E4v) is an English translation by Walter Lynne of a sermon on matrimony by Martin Luther. This copy collates pi1-4, B-G1-8, H1-2, seemingly complete but differing from that on ESTC. The catchword on E8 does not match F1 but apparently correct.
