2nd edition. 8vo. 16pp. In printed cream wraps. With pseudo-seventeenth-century title and with the long "s" used throughout. Title continues: 'in a Visitatione of all ye Parisshe Churches & College Chapells of Cambridge during a Longe Vacation; wch Narration, latelie imprinted in ye Cambridge Review, is here newlie sett forthe & edited'. Clean text throughout. William Dowsing was a sixteenth-century Puritan iconoclast who kept a journal of his various depredations, this 'account of a similar visitation at some later date' which the editors claim 'has recently come into our hands'. This is a spoof publication lampooning the various colleges, and of course Oxford University! G+ .
