[sig. a1v] Ad Lectorem.

Hos libros, amice Lector, quidam ante multos annos in linguam latinam transtulit, sed non est tantum verborum interpres, sed quasi paraphrastem egit. Quamobrem difficilis in emendando labor fuit: in quo si tibi satisfactum non est: angustiæ temporis tribuas. Tuis enim commodis inseruire, ex animo cupiui. Quare vt non tam quid fecerim, quàm quid facere tua causa voluerim, perpendas: etiam atque etiam oro, Vale.

To the Reader.

These books, dear Reader, were translated into Latin by someone many years ago, but he was not just an interpreter of words, but acted as a paraphraser. Therefore, it was difficult to correct, for which I ask your forgiveness if I have not fully satisfied you. I truly wished to serve your interests. Therefore, please consider not only what I have done, but what I have wished to do for your sake. I ask again and again, farewell.
