The editions of The Temple from 1633 to 1809 are cited by the year of publication, the 2nd edition, issued in the same year as the 1st, being cited as 16332, and the 'seventh Edition' without imprint as undated 7th edn. The edition of 1695, using the sheets of 1674 without alteration, is ignored. Such a description as 1 638- is used to imply that a reading first adopted in 1638 was retained in subsequent editions of the seventeenth century, and 1638-60 implies that a reading first adopted in 1638 kept its place in all editions up to and including that of 1660.

For works other than The Temple the MS. or printed book used as the basis of the text is named first in the footnotes, and all deviations from it are noted. Other MSS. and printed books containing the text are separately named in the appropriate footnotes.
