Edition

[Another ed.] to which are now added seventeen curious tracts ... which completes all he ever wrote upon Natural History /

Notes:

Practically this edition consists, like the previous one, of original copies of the several works bound together, but the old 8 ̊text has been reprinted in folio, and incorporated with the new matter in Vol. 1 as shown below. The sheet of "Brief Directions" has been transferred to the beginning of Vol. 1; otherwise Vol. 2 is unchanged, save that the figures of the insects are coloured.

Most of Petiver's shorter papers appeared either in the "Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society", or in "The Monthly Miscellany; or Memoirs for the Curious", 3 vols., 1707-09, of which the first two vols. were re-issued in 1710 under the title of "A compleat volume of the Memoirs for the Curious, from Jan. 1707 to Dec. 1708". - (See also the account of Petiver in Trimen & Dyer's "Flora of Middlesex", pp. 379-385).
