Excerpt from Bishop Burnet's History of His Own Time, Vol. 1: With the Suppressed Passages of the First Volume, and Notes by the Karls of Dartmouth and Hardwicke, and Speaker Onslow, Hither to Unpublished; To Which Are Added the Cursory Remarks of Swift, and Other Observations

IN the preparation of a new Edition of Burnet's History several points have especially demanded attention. Errors, positive or probable, required correction or suggested emendation, and omissions supplement; many statements invited illustration; it was desirable to indicate as far as possible the probable sources of Burnet's information upon matters which did not come under his personal observation; the notes of the earlier editions obviously needed revision. Finally it was necessary to provide a trustworthy text.
