B. Tooke, T. Passenger [et al.], London 1686 - Best and last edition, with additions, corrections and a geographical index by Nicholas Lloyd; folio, pp. [10], [726]; text in double column; contemporary full calf neatly rebacked, red morocco label on spine; small hole in A1 causing loss to several letters, else a good, sound copy or better. With the ownership label of DeWitt Starnes on the flyleaf and in the bottom margin of the title-page, who in his Renaissance Dictionaries (Austin, 1954) cites it as a source for Cooper and Holyoke, and calls it "a Latin text devoted solely to proper names" which was in "great vogue from [its initial publication in] 1553 to the end of the seventeenth century." But in fact, the 1553 edition was based largely on the earlier Latin-French dictionary of his brother Robert, which had reached three editions by 1553. Wing E3349; Vancil, p. 83.
