Book Description

Very scarce. The publisher's dedication to Robert Walpole 'It might perhaps be expected that this address, to one in so high a station, should, as usual, consist of some pages of panegyrick; but performances of that kind as much beyond my capacity, as you are about receiving them from me', from the Advertisement. Schipper in Amsterdam printed a quantity and the Jesuits bought up most of them. In Latin and English . Estc T93320 attributes authorship to Hieronim Zahorowski. Twelve pages of advertisements are lacking.
