“I think that it is not generally known that the first really improved edition of this very useful book is in folio, Lond., 1701. This was superintended by Bishop Kenett, who made many additions, and wrote the preface. I learn this from a manuscript note of Bishop Tanner's, in his own copy, which was given him by the editor, and is now in the Bodleian. It has a great number of valuable notes by Tanner in MS., which have been transcribed by Mr. Ellis into a copy of the same edition in the British Museum.”—Note by Dr. P. Bliss in Reliquiæ Hearnianæ, second edit., vol. i. p. 307.
