HOU hast bere a Compleat Collection of
the several Works of Mr. John Lock E, Wer which were publish'd in his Life-time,
either with or without his Name to them. And that thou mayst be csur’d that the Latter are truly his, I think it proper to transcribe the following Clause out of his last Will and Testament: “Whereas to the Reverend Dr. Hudson, Library-Keeper of the « Bodleian Library in the University of Oxford, a writ to me some time since, defiring of me, for the « said Library, the Books whereof I was the Author ; “ I did, in return to the honour done me therein, pre“ sent to the said Library All the Books that were. “ publish'd under my Name; which tho' accepted with, “ honour able mention of me, yet were not understood “ to answer the Request made me, it being suppos’d " that there were other Treatises whereof I was the « Author, which have been publish'd without my “ Name to them. In compliance therefore with what « was desir'd in the utmost Extent of it, and in ac
knowledgment of the Honour done me, in thinking “ my Writings worthy to be placed among the Works “ of the Learned in that August Repository; I do here
« by further give to the Publick Library of “ the University of Oxford, these following “ Books; that is to say: Three Letters concern“ ing Toleration: Two Treatises of Government, “ (whereof Mr. Churchill has publisk'd several “ Editions, but all very incorrect) The Reasonable“ nefs of Christianity, as deliver'd in the Scrip“ tures. A Vindication of the Reasonableness of « Christianity from Mr. Edwards’s Reflections :
And, A Second Vindication of the Reasonable“ ness of Christianity. These are all the Books, “ whereof I am the Author, which have been pub“ lished without my Name to them."
To these Books publish'd by Mr. LOCK E in his Life-time, are added these following, which have been printed since his Death, viz. His Paraphrafe on St. Paul's Epistles to the Galatians, Corinthians, Romans, and Ephesians : To which is perfix'd, An Essay for the Understanding of St. Paul's Epistles, by consulting St. Paul himself. His Posthumous Works: and Some familiar Letters between him and his Friends.
As to this Edition of all his works together, 1 have this to advertise the Reader, That most of them are printed from Copies corrected and enlarg’d under Mr. Locke's own Hand; and in particular, That the Two Treatises of Government were never till now publish'd from a Copy corrected by himself.
