Written by Matthew Pattenson. Cf. STC (2nd ed.), Halkett & Laing. However, "the eighteenth-century identification of the author with a Dr. Matthew Pattenson lacks proof. Contemporaries describe him as 'M[ister] Patteson' a priest"--Allison & Rogers. Catholic books, no. 599-600. Evidently intended, by the initials on the title page, to pass as the work of the Protestant Peter Du Moulin. Cf. Lowndes, vol. 4, p. 1803. Signatures: ã⁴ A-FF⁸. Of two editions which have line for line settings of the same text, this edition has the word "more" in line 2, p. 81. Cf. Allison & Rogers. Printer's device on t.p., headpieces, initials.
Binding: old limp vellum. Ms. notes on binder's leaves.
