Contents

f. 1 Title page: 'Sancti Iohannis Apostoli Vindiciæ contra Novatores et Falsarios.'

Subsidiary title page: 'Corruptelæ Duorum Celebrium in Sacris Literis Locorum Historica Narratio. Sive Dissertatio Critica et Historica de Ceberrimis [sic] duobus N T. Locis a priscis tam Græci quam Latini Nominis Scriptoribus attentatis olim, et corruptis. Vizt 1. Ep. Ioh. 5 etc., 1. Ep. Tim 3.16. In Epistola ad virum Nobilissimum Eruditissimumque perscripta.'

The text in fact deals only with 1 John 5:7. A note on this verse, in an unidentified hand (wrongly described as Newton's in the Sotheby catalogue), is loosely inserted after f. 1.
