NOTE. I have not been able to procure a copy of the first edition of the Sylva Sylvarum, which was published in 1627. Wherever therefore I speak of “the original,” I must be understood to refer to the second edition, which appeared in 1628. The same remark will apply to the New Atlantis, in the next volume. - J.S.
