I'm working from a photocopy/print of an original of this book.  It
was real ...interesting typing out what was written, since in some
places the print is faded, the various characters and conventions of
the type of the period.

And yes, I put the wrong date originally as I double check myself,
1603, 1603, 1603...

Hugh Plat's name wasn't mentioned that I saw, but I will look again.
It's been a while since I looked the whole thing over and my quick
look at the title page the other night could have been more thorough.

So much to do and so little attention span to get it done with…
