A rather particular description of this hitherto unrecorded Southwark edition may be acceptable. The copy was brought under my notice by Mr. John Bohn at Sotheby's, April 15, 1880. It seems to vary in arrangement from the later issues.

The title is within a border of pieces, the lower portion beneath the particulars given above being occupied by Wolsey's arms; the reverse is blank. On A 2 occurs: Ad Lectorem, a set of Latin hexameters and pentameters, followed on the reverse by Wolsey's preface, dated Aug. 1, 1528. The Methodus fills the four next pages. On B i recto come the Rules, succeeded by


the Articles of Faith, Precepts of Living, the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, &c. On Ci recto we get An Introduction of the parts of Speaking, which extends to G 4 recto. The last division consists of Lily's Rudiments, except some verses by him De Moribus, &c., on the last four pages. A good deal of the book is in English.

On the back of the titlepage of the copy here used is the following contemporary note: "The Author John Graunt was a London Carpinter, very mutable in his religion, turning and returning from being a protestant to a papist, again & againe. This information I had from Mr. Shadwell the poet, who was first intended for a Lawyer, being entered in the Inns of Court." But Aubrey, in his Miscellanies, ascribes the book to Sir William Petty, which attribution is usually accepted.
