The yellow glazed endpapers are brown mottled. Illustrations 1-80 show nature mostly as groups of animals and plants. Illustrations 81-241 depict trades incl. several cooking scenes, miners, textile weaving, wig-makers etc. 243-256 cosmography & geography showing different religions, virtues. 269-282 show children playing, men playing billiards, wrestling, circus & theatres, lessons in fencing, dancing, balloon rides, fireworks, bullfights, horse racing, a marvellous train with a postillion blowing a horn & open coaches and a chimney like a barber's pole, later we see deep sea diving bells being used to salvage cannons. There is an example of slave traders, a summer fair and Christmas celebrations, finally a few more trades, eg. forging steel, the file maker, carpets being made, nightwatchman, messenger and post with finally a grave-side scene. Each illustration is accompanied by a 5 language text - English, German, French & Latin and, newly added for the first time in this edition, Italian.

Here he defends belief in the prior existence of souls and thus reincarnation, also tied in with belief in ghosts, but as a sceptic he seeks empirical proof. His views and Dr. Rust's are then defended in Henry More's Annotations, all 3 thus virtually forming an early society of psychical research.
