Early modern philosophy versus early modern English

For those of you who have found difficulty, as readers, students, or teachers, with the English of early modern philosophers might want to see if the Some Texts from Early Modern Philosophy, edited by Jonathan Bennett, are of help.
"On this site you will find versions of some classics of early modern philosophy, and a few from the 19th century, prepared with a view to making them easier to read while leaving intact the main arguments, doctrines, and lines of thought."
As he indicates, some of the works were not from the early modern period. In addition, some were not originally in English.
