This is probably the 1716 reissue of Part I of "Athenae britannicae" which was first published anonymously in 1715 under title: Eikon mikro-biblike (recorded as ESTC T135524) and then reissued with a cancel title page in 1716 (ESTC T135525). Two other vols. in this set T135526 (Part 2) and ESTC T200741 (Part 3) also appeared in 1716. Pagination (including the errors) and signatures match ESTC T135525 but the title page matches that recorded under ESTC T200741 for Part 3. It is unclear if work here is actually an intentional variant of ESTC T135525 or if it's simply that the title page to Part 3 was used instead.
Errors in pagination: page 226 mispaginated 216; page 344 omitted in pagination but no loss of text.
Signatures: pi²(±pi1) A⁴ a-k⁴ B-2Y⁴ 2Z².
