PREFACE.

The present volume contains the remainder of Bramhall's treatises upon the subject of schism. They have been reprinted, as were those in the former volume, from the folio edition of his Works corrected by the original editions of the separate treatises : and consist of two Discourses ; viz. The Replication to the Bishop of Chalcedon’sa Survey, with an Appendix in Reply to S. W., Lond. 1656 ; and Schism Guarded, Hague 1658.

It is necessary to mention, that the quotations, made in the former of these treatises from the Bishop of Chalcedon's book to which it is a reply, do not tally in all cases with the copy of that book in the Bodleian Library; and this, in many instances, in a way which cannot have arisen from carelessnessb. The copy in question bears no marks of belonging to a second or revised edition ; but as the titlepage has the date 1655, while Doddo and Woodd both speak of it as being published in 1654, it probably is so.

It must be mentioned also, as some apology for the frequent introduction of corrections into the latter of the two

As the Replies and Rejoinders which followed upon the publication of the Just Vindication were rather numerous, it may be convenient to add a list of them. They were as follows:
