There is, I believe a small and inconsequential error in one of his colorful examples. His early edition of Leviathan was “printed for Andrew Crooke, at the Green Dragon in St. Pauls Churchyard, 1651.” He takes this to mean that it was printed by a firm called Green Dragon for a bookseller named Andrew Cooke, which is probably wrong. It was, instead, printed by an anonymous stationer for Andrew Cooke, whose shop, located in St. Paul’s Churchyard, is identified by a sign featuring a green dragon.
