_______________________

"N. B. Φιλιππος" is a pseudonym (Φιλιππος, or Philippos, means "lover of horses"). His book, The Farrier's and Horseman's Dictionary, Being a Compleat System of Horsemanship, was published in London in 1726. According to the Preface to Thomas Wallis' own The Farrier's and Horseman's Complete Dictionary (1759), "A book appeared upon the same plan, between thirty and forty years ago, intitled the Farrier's and Horseman's Dictionary. The compiler of this work did not make the utmost advantage of such helps as might be had, even at the time he wrote: since which, however, the art of farriery in particular has been greatly improved" (iv). In The Early History of Veterinary Literature and its British Development (Frederick Smith, 1933), the anonymous writer "does not appear to have had the most elementary knowledge of the subject; he even reproduces Bradley's nonsense about the "cordes" and "cold" in the head!" (vol. 2, p. 23).

The Military Dictionary and the Sea Dictionary are the same book: A military dictionary. Explaining all difficult terms in martial discipline, fortification, and gunnery. The third edition, improv'd. To which is likewise added, a sea-dictionary of all the terms of navigation. Both of them very useful (to all persons that read the publick news, or serve in the army, navy, or militia) for the understanding the accounts of sieges, battels, and other warlike and marine expeditions, which daily occur in this time of action. By officers who serv'd several years at sea and land. London : printed; and sold by J. Morphew near Stationers-Hall, MDCCVIII. [1708]. "The Maritime Terms here explain'd, are not commonly known and intelligible to Land-Men, who, if any Thing Curious, must be well pleas'd to understand them, as they occur in Relations, which cannot possibly be without them" ("To The Reader"). The first edition appeared in 1702; the author is unknown.
