[sig. A1v] Cordato lectori.

Qvi tibi perpetuos, lector, prius optime fastos
Perpetuæ scripsit posteritatis opus:
Jdem perpetuo nunc quæ præsagia durent
Tempore, perpetuas adijcit autor opes.
Huic tu perpetuas pro tanto age munere grates,
Petpetuaq́ue viri nomina laude vehe.

Christophorus Manlius Lusatius.

The author adds unending resources.
