London: printed for D. Brown, T. Goodwin, J. Walthoe, J. Nicholson, B. Took, D. Midwinter, and T. Ward, 1719. Second edition, "with the addition of above three thousand words not in the former," 8vo, pp. [636]; [pi3] a2 B-R7 R-2L8 2M4 2N-2Q8 2R4; small woodcuts throughout, mostly of an heraldic nature; contemporary full calf, red morocco label on gilt-paneled spine; corners worn, spine ends chipped, small cracks starting at the extremities of the joints; good, clean, and relatively sound. In spite of the claim, Starnes & Noyes note that this edition contains "no important change... We should estimate that only about one thousand words and miscellaneous items have been added."
