The first edition of "Apocalypsis" (London, 1655) was published as part 2 of the second edition of Ross's "Pansebeia" (Wing R1972). It was translated by John Davies from "Apocalypsis insignium aliquot haeresiarcharvm" (Lugduni-Batavorum, 1608), which in turn was from a Dutch original, "Growelen der vornemsten hooft-ketteren" (Leyden: H.L. van Haestens, 1607) attributed to Hendrick Lodevik van Haestens. (Cf. D. Clément, Bibliothéque curieuse, t. 9)
What in earlier editions constituted the second part of the work with title: "Apocalypsis : or, The revelation of certain notorious advancers of heresie" is here given a new heading on title page, reading: "The lives, actions, and ends of certain notorious hereticks". It begins on page 545.
With an engraved frontispiece portrait of the author.
