Abstract
  • "General and rare memorials pertayning to the perfect arte of nauigation: annexed to the paradoxal cumpas, in playne: now first published: 24. yeres, after the first inuention thereof." The name of the author, John Dee, appears encoded in the signatures of the first three quires, in the letter inset on p. [epsilon] 2v., and in other places. Mainly an argument for a "Pety-Navy-Royall" for protection of the coast and fisheries. With a title-page woodcut. Imprint from colophon. Imprimatur at foot of colophon: Cum priuilegio Regiæ Maiestatis. Leaves [delta]3,4 are cancels. With slip-cancel, p. 15, line 19, "A sword, keepeth peace" (altered from "maketh"). A statement on K4r, 5 lines up, states that 100 copies were printed. This number is altered in MS. in the CSmH copy to 50. Signatures: pi1 [delta]⁴(±[delta]3,4) [epsilon]⁴?[epsilon]*⁴?A-K⁴?[L]1 [M]².
