This edition, prefaced by British librarian and bibliographer Strickland Gibson (1877-1958), compares the first two editions of Ben Jonson's Grammar. "In view of the confusion which has hitherto prevailed with regard to the text of the Grammar, it was thought that a verbatim reprint (omitting the Latin notes) of the 1640 edition, with the variant readings of the 1692 edition would have a definite value to scholars." Prefatory note.
