'Each page of the MS. has been represented as far as possible by ordinary type, the words and letters printed in italic being those which in the MS. are struck out by the writer. It will be observed that some words in italic are underlined in the MS. This is to indicate that although they had been struck out they were to be restored. The peculiarities which could not be represented by the use of ordinary type are recorded in the Notes.' Preface. Milton's manuscript volume remains the chief treasure of the College Library. Extremely scarce. Stevens 304."
