"Published as an antidote to Burnet, and avowedly written as a defence of the Roman Catholics."--Lowndes.

It has been stated that this book, although bearing the imprint of Brussels, was evidently printed in England-not at Sherborne, as mentioned by Lowndes, but in London; and that an inspection of W. Bowyer's ledger showed it issued from his press. But really it is hard to believe the latter assertion, as there are various typothetical peculiarities utterly at variance with the traditional correctness of Bowyer's productions.
