The first addition of this dictionary was printed in 1721. The date of this edition should be 1775, not 1675. I wish the first addition was available.
The title page indicates that this is the Twenty First Edition and the publication date on that page was misread as 1675 instead of 1775 due to a faded Roman numeral.
