Comments:
Miscellany series: as the ESTC notes, the 'Miscellanea Sacra' was conceived to be part of an annual miscellany series, but the idea was abandoned. It was, however, revived in 1705 by a subsequent editor, Samuel Phillips. Date: an error in the Roman numerals on the title-page misleadingly states that the date of publication is 1496, when it is in fact 1696. Plates: plate facing the title-page with a biblical quotation underneath.
Other matter:
Prefatory matter: (1) Dedication 'To her Royal Highness The Princess ANNE of DENMARK' (2) Preface End matter: (1) 'The Contents'
