The author, in his preface, deals tolerantly with the many and varied theories concerning magnetic bodies, instancing many of the most notable from those of Pliny and Nicander to that of Robert Norman. He is however particularly emphatic concerning the production of perpetual motion by means of the load-stone, he finding it "by the experience of many ingenious practices. . . unpossible to be done."
