Title, 1 l., Vorrede des Ubersetzers (sic), 2 ll., Zuschriften Graunts, 4 ll., Vorrede des Autoris, 1 l., Register, 4 ll., pp. 1—112, 1 folded table, 12°.——The translator was Dr Gottfried Schultz of Breslau. See p. 318 note.

Note: Graunt did not write the "Reflections On the weekly Bills of Mortality For the Cities of London and Westminster and the places adjacent: But more especially so far as they relate to the plague... London: Printed for Samuel Speed, at the Rainbow in Fleet street. 1665." This pamphlet was issued in two editions, both in quarto. All that is of value in either of them was filched from Graunt, but their compiler appears to have drawn liberally from his own imagination also. They were promptly denounced as spurious by John Bell, clerk to the Company of Parish Clerks, in his "London's Remembrancer" issued in the same year. Cf. pp. xliii, 426.
