  • General Notes: “[The Major practicks] has never until now emerged from the uncertainty of varying manuscript copies … a general survey has been made of all copies … in Scottish institutional libraries. Of these only one vouches its date with certitude. (Nat'l. lib. adv. M.S. 24.3.10) As the date of this copy, 1656, definitely brings it within from nine to ten years of Sir Thomas Hope's death, it has been selected to form the principal text of the present edition.”–Introduction.
