London: Printed for Tho. Salusbury, 1691. 8vo, [xii], 434,  pp, rebound, with an older spine preserved, raised in five bands with gilt-ruled compartments. Lacking the portrait frontispiece. Trimmed a bit tight at upper margin, with the edges of the text block marbled. Some tidemarking throughout, and a small chip missing from lower tip of frontispiece with some minimal loss.
A sound example of the only edition of this early anthology of Boehme's works to be translated into English, 67 years after his death - an important early edition for raising awareness of his work in English. The publisher's preface notes that Taylor was a gentleman living in Dublin and a good protestant, but gives no other biographical details. Taylor's text stresses the prelapsarian androgyny of Adam. Gibbons notes Taylor as being one of the more conservative interpreters of Boehme's thought with regards to gender.
