Precisian, perhaps == one who stands upon punctilios: “though Love use Reason for his p., he admits him not for his counsellor,” Wiv. II, 1, 5, i. e. though Love may calculate the exact proportion of age, temper etc. in making his choice (as Falstaff does in what follows) yet, after all, he is not to be controlled by the advice of reason. Most M. Edd., referring to Sonn. 147, 5, physician, but the two passages have nothing in common.
