Side 20 - For the king knoweth of these things before whom also I speak freely; for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not done in a corner. King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest.
Side 78 - Music exalts each joy, allays each grief, Expels diseases, softens every pain, Subdues the rage of poison and the plague; And hence the wise of ancient days adored One power of Physic, Melody, and Song.
Side 78 - There is a charm, a power, that sways the breast; Bids every passion revel or be still ; Inspires with rage, or all your cares dissolves ; Can soothe distraction, and almost despair. That power is Music...
Side 210 - Original, as complete as moderate limits and a reasonable price would allow. The subjects are presented in the same order in which they appear in the original. The more important dissertations are reprinted in the style and language of the respective authors...

Side 210 - Transactions are accurately re-engraven, except such as are quite unnecessary to the elucidation of the subjects discussed.

The work concludes with a very copious Index.
