Bacon calls him a great scholar, and "a notable traitor by the book, being otherwise a turbulent and mutinous spirit against all superiors". In this work he "shows wide reading in the writings of the Greek philosophers; a belief in astrology, and faith in a divine providence" (DNB). This copy belonged to Philip Bliss (1787-1857) antiquary and book collector, whose library was sold in a series of sales at Sotheby's in 1858. STC 6105.
