“This edition of Religio medici and Digby’s Observations is printed from copies lent by Professor William Osler. The text of Religio follows that of the first authentic edition of 1643, page for page and line for line. To preserve identity of reference the errors of pagination (pp. 171 and 172 are duplicated) and section-numbering have been left undisturbed. The text has been corrected from the errata page of the original; a few obvious misprints, not there noticed, have also been removed (see p. 184)” (preface).
