Comments:
Query: double check ECCO text vs bod text: there are possible discrepancies (i.e. ECCO doesn't have Preface signed Philalethes; where do the two poems pp. vii-viii fit? does Bod have frontispiece? ECCO text has no title page.) Contents: Prose pp. 1-14; 22-47; 48; 1-18; 29; 30-32.
Other matter:
Prefatory matter: Preface signed Philalethes pp. iii-vi; Introduction to Life of John Barber pp. i-xxii; Barber's Last Will and Testament, pp.xxiii-xxxi; Wills sold by Curll [1p]; Appendix, pp. i-xvi.
