    Apologiae Duae et Diologus cum Tryphone Judeo. Cum notis & emandationibus Styani Thirlbii. Londini [London]: Impensis Richardi Sare [...] 1722.

Nineteenth century book label: Bishopric of Cornwall. Second century Christian author, probably martyred under Marcus Aurelius. Styan Thirlby’s edition is described by Dibdin as ‘splendid and carefully executed’, although Dibdin is cautious regarding Thirlby’s achievements as editor: ingenious but vain seems to be his opinion.
