Magna Britannia et Hibernia, antiqua et nova. Or, a new survey of Great Britain / Wherein to the topographical account given by Mr. Cambden, and the late editors of his Britannia, is added a more large history, not only of the cities, boroughs, towns, and parishes mentioned by them, but also of many other places of note, and antiquities since discovered. Together with the chronology of the most remarkable actions of the Britains, Romans, Saxons, Danes, and Normans. The lives and constitutions of the bishops of all our sees, founders and benefactors to our universities and monasteries, the sufferings of martyrs, and many other ecclesiastical matters. The acts and laws of our parliaments, with the place of their meeting. A character of such eminent statesmen and churchmen as have signalized themselves by their wise conduct and writings. And the pedigrees of all our noble families and gentry, both ancient and modern, according to the best relations extant. Collected and composed by an impartial hand. [Anon].
