The work is preceded by a two page dedication 'to the right worshipful his honorable good friend M. Dr Mountague, Dean of his Majesty's Chapel'. This is James Montague (c 1568-1618). There is also a three page dedication 'to his brethren of the ministry and the beloved readers'.
This is the work that I am slowly aiming to transcribe onto these pages at present. It was later revised and expanded.
