The cuts have been reproduced from the copper-plates of the first edition of 1658, from which the Latin text has also been taken. The English translation is by Charles Hoole from the English edition of 1727. "The typography suggests rather that imitates the quaintness of the original, and the paper was carefully selected to produce so far as practicable the impression of the old hand-presses." -- Editor's pref.
