Outer formes of quires B and C in this edition exist in two settings, chronologically in the order as follows. B1r line 1 (1) ends with a comma, or (2) has no comma. C1r, first line of caption title ends (1) "im-" or (2) "the". Also, the inner formes of quires B, C, and K have both corrected and uncorrected states, one of which (the "chaunge" reading on C1v) is used by STC to distinguish 6355 from 6355.2. This distinction, however, is bibliographically insignificant. For further analysis, see Eberle, Gerald J. "Sir John Davies' Nosce teipsum, 1599". Studies in bibliography 1 (1948), p. 135-148. This copy is in setting 1.
