The epistle dedicatory; some thoughts concerning education. Appendices: formal variants; letters of transmittal to Edward Clarke; Mr Locke's extempore advice.
'The text now published, essentially the expanded third edition, is
very unlikely ever to be superseded ... Readers seeking the perfect
text of Locke's book will find it here.'
Times Literary Supplement
'As befits their standing in the Locke community, the Yoltons have also given us a beautifully prepared text ... Again the text is presented with model clarity ... the Yoltons clearly recognize that finally having a good edition of this very important Lockean piece far outweighs the value of any introduction.'
Richard Kroll, University of California, Irvine
