References to other works are made on the system used by Laslett, 1960; that is, by author and date of publication only, followed by a Roman numeral in brackets if the author published in that year more than one work used here. A full description of each authority appears in the Bibliography at the end. Manuscript sources prefixed singly by 'MS Locke' are all in the Lovelace Collection, Bodleian Library, Oxford. This collection is described in detail in Long, 1959. Other manuscript sources are prefixed by an abbreviation of the library and the collection number followed by the page or folio number. The abbreviations used are as follows:
|A.U.L.||Amsterdam University Library, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.|
|B.M.||British Museum, London, England.|
|B.P.F.||Bibliothèque du Protestantisme Français, Paris, France.|
|C.U.L.||Cambridge University Library, Cambridge, England.|
|Harvard||Harvard University Library, Cambridge, Mass., U.S.A.|
One other abbreviation which I have used frequently is 'H & L' followed by a number. This refers to the number of the catalogue of Locke's final library prepared by John Harrison and Peter Laslett, 1965. This has been used to draw attention to the intellectual tradition in which Locke read and wrote.
