Breviarium chronologicum: or, a treatise describing the terms and most celebrated characters, periods, and epocha's used in chronology. Originally written by Giles Strauchius, D. D. and publick Professor in the University of Wittebergh. First done into English from the third edition in Latin, by Richard Sault, F. R. S. And by him enlarg'd with all the most useful things (omitted by the author) taken from Bishop Beveridge his Institutiones Chronologicae, and from Dr Holder his Account of Time: As also with the Epocha's of the Principal Kingdoms, and States of Europe, with Tables calculated to the Author's Method. The same published afterward in a second edition corrected. Now again published in a third edition: Wherein the Translation hath been faithfully compar'd with the Original, by another Hand; and every thing material in the Original, but omitted in the two former Editions of the Translation, is supplied in this. And many useful Notes and References, and the Years before, and after Christ corresponding to the Julian Years made use of by the Author, are inserted. Also the respective Chronologies in the Appendix brought down in the second Edition to the Publication thereof, are in this continued. And lastly, an useful Index is added to the whole.
