He particularly cited the drudgery of elementary memorization of rules and the absence of adequate English translations as flaws' (ODNB). While schoolmaster he published translations of a number of classical authors, including Ovid, Suetonius, and Sallust; this version of Cornelius Nepos was also very popular, and reached its fifteenth London edition by the end of the eighteenth century.

Prideaux, Humphrey.
E. Curll, J. Hooke, W. Mears & F. Clay, 1723. "Offered to the Consideration of the deists of the Present Age," this is the eighth, corrected edition of a polemic originally published in 1697 by the dean of Norwich. Much read and widely influential on both English and American opinions of Islam, this work led to the common attachment of the "impostor" epithet to Mohammed's name in Western usage. The "Discourse for the Vindicating of Christianity from the Charge of Imposture" has a separate title-page dated 1722, but its pagination is continuous with the first work.

First published in 4to 1685 and edited by the Jesuit Jean Hardouin of Quimper (1646-1729). Ebert #17294 prefers this edition over the first due to the revisions. Dibdin p325 notes that the second edition is by far the more copious, splendid and critical performance. The explanatory notes are placed under the text and the critical ones are inserted at the end of each book. Some light marginal stains, but otherwise a fresh clean copy with two contemporary bookplates in each volume.
