DICTIONARIUM SACRUM seu religiosum. A dictionary of all religions, ancient and modern...
London: James Knapton, 1704. First edition, 8vo, 8 preliminary leaves and unpaginated lexicon in double column; slightly later full paneled calf neatly rebacked to match, red morocco label on spine; a gathering extended, worm track in bottom margin has been repaired and the imprint on the title page has been slightly affected, but all in all this is a good, sound, and respectable-looking copy. A second edition appeared in 1723. Attributed at various times (but erroneously) to Daniel DeFoe, this appears to be the first work of its kind in English. Vancil, p. 71; not in Moore. Item #9388
