Completely reset in modern format, this new edition brings to­gether works of Aubrey long out of print and unobtainable. The text of the Miscelanies follows the first (1696) edition in spelling, style, and punctu­ation, and the same principle has been adopted for the Remaines and Observations. In addition to a full introduction the editor has supplied appendices, textual notes, and a biographical index to persons mentioned in the three works.
