Note 1. That these may seem too many, though they are few to a full and rich library. 2. That it is not my advice that you read over all these, or half; for that would but make them a snare for sinning, and waste of time: but a minister of the Gospel should have more books by him than he can read over, for particular uses, and to see the author's judgment occasionally, and to try other men's citations. 3. That a minister must neither study the matter without the help of other men's studies by reading much; nor yet read much without studying the thing itself.

'He that would have more books may see Voetius Bibliothec, and many other catalogues*
