EW Books are so perfe&i in their first Editions, as to need no Improvement
or Addition afterwards. But it would be injustice to the Publick to suppress all future Improvement, rather than offend the first
Buyers. Our Customers therefore we hope, will pardon Us, if the many Additions in this Edition do depretiate the former. The Quantity of this is more, but the quality of that is the same : For tho the Author found it necessary to add Paragraphs very frequently, and whole Chapters fometimes. He did not write at first with so little Thought mendments excepted. And therefore the Pop Sors of the former Edition cannot think themselves abused.
The Author was very desirous of having the Additions Printed by themselves; but the number of 'em, and their being interspers’d in every Page, render’d that impracticable. He has now set the last Hand to it, and we hope it is so Compleat as to need no more Improvement.
A Word more in relation to the . Latin Edition of this Work printed in Holland, the Publisher of which pretends it was Corrected by the Author ; but that being quite therwise, we must take this opportunity to let the World know, that the Author never sawit till it was all Printed ; and therefore the many Errors found in it must not be imputed to Him.
