A Note on Dates and Transcriptions

IN the 1620s most of continental Europe used the Gregorian calendar (New Style), which was ten days ahead of the Julian calendar (Old Style) used in England. In this book, where events in England and material from English sources are concerned, both dates are given (with the New Style date added in square brackets if it has been inferred); otherwise, where events on the Continent are concerned, only the New Style date is used.

The transcription of all manuscript material here aims to reproduce as accurately as possible the original text, altering or omitting only those kinds of detail that are of no importance to the study of its meaning. The original spelling is preserved, but long ‘s’ and the ligatures ‘æ’ and ‘œ’ are normalized, and the double hyphen’=’ is presented as a single hyphen. Superscripts are preserved, but other sorts of contraction are expanded—silently if they are simple and unambiguous, but otherwise with the expansion placed within square brackets. The original punctuation is normally adhered to; only in very rare cases is punctuation emended, with the emendation presented in square brackets. The main form of emphasis used in the Hobbes manuscript consists of writing in larger script; this is rendered here as italics, and the occasional use of underlining is presented as underlining. (In quotations from other manuscripts elsewhere in this book, underlining is rendered as italics.)

Editorial interventions, and the recording of information about the text in the text itself, are presented in square brackets. The most important of these are as follows. Where a deletion is legible, it is presented thus:

I have [sent deleted] delivered your letters

Where the deletion is not legible, an attempt is made to indicate its extent. Thus:

I have [word deleted] your letters

Or:

I have [2 letters deleted] your letters
