Scope and Content

Apocalyptical notes and studies, from the following authors: ‘Mr Beverley’ (pp. 1-17), ‘John Fox’ (pp. 18-20), ‘Dr More, Paralepom. p. 164’ (pp. 21-26), ‘Cluverey p. 28 &c. contra Alcasar’ (p. 27) and ‘Artopoeus’ (p. 28). Neatly written in quarto, not by Baxter.


Argent notes that 'Alcasar is probably the Jesuit, Ludovici ab Alcasar Hispalensis, the author of Vestigatio arcani sensus in Apocalypsi : cum opusculo de sacris ponderibus ac mensuris (1614).'

And 'Is the reference to Artopoeus to the following? The diuisyon of the places of the lawe and of the Gospell, gathered owt of the hooly scriptures by Petrum Artopoeum: wher unto is added two orations of prayeng to God made by S. Iohn. Chrisostome, no lesse necessary then lerned. Translated into English and published probably in 1548. Petrus Artopoeus, the German Hebraist, was also known as Peter Becker (1491-1563) who wrote some works in Latin on the Apocalypse. See A Hyamson A dictionary of universal biography (1951).'
