An Abridgment of Mr. Locke's Essay concerning Humane Understanding. The Second Edition, Corrected and Enlarged
London: Printed for A. And J. Churchil.. 1700 Second edition. Nineteenth-century blindstamped paneled calf, edges stained red. . Small octavo. Front hinge weak, but holding. A very good copy. "The abridgement was Wynne's own idea and is based on the 2nd and 3rd editions (textually the same). Locke is said to have approved an abridgement in principle. This is one of the very few books dedicated to Locke (curiously)....Rather than rephrasing, Wynne's abridgment was accomplished by making strategic deletions in each chapter, sometimes adding transitional phrases, and keeping to Locke's own words" (Yolton pp 155/6).
