Art. I. 1. Joannis Miltoni Angli de Doctrina Christiana Libri duo

posthumi, quos ex Schedis Manuscriptis deprompsit, et Typis Man-, dari primus curavit Carolus Ricardus Sumner, A.M. Bibliothecae

Regis Præfectus. 4to. 21. 108. Cantabrigie, 1825. 2. A Treatise on Christian Doctrine, compiled from the Holy Scrip
