Notes

The best collected edition of Hobbes's English-language works, "the most widely used edition of Hobbes's works", of which "there is nothing of comparable scope", until the long-planned Clarendon Press edition is completed (Sorell, The Cambridge Companion to Hobbes, p. xi). A five-volume edition of Hobbes's Latin works was also published at the same time.
