Citation: Rare Books, Special Collections Research Center, Swem Library, College of William and Mary.
Description: The second and third books were apparently printed by different printers as indicated by the different type in the headings and the break in paging between the two books. Swem Library's copy contains an enclosure made on a half sheet of printed paper. The printed message cautions against accepting unqualified candidates for a physician's position and may have originated with the College of Physicians. The text has been crossed out and the paper used to record manuscript formulae. Signatures: [A]-Z⁴, (H₂ lettered G₂) Aa-Zz⁴, ***4, Aaa-Ooo⁴
