This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1809 edition. Excerpt: ... An Devorniewis, ut idem sit, quod Dorobernensis 9 Sciscitor, quia etsijam in vivis esset Edmundus Cantuariensis, pro Archiepiscopo iamen tune temporis ob res suas turbatas minus liabendumfuisse, non defuerunt qui censuerint." But all this about Archbishop Edmund is entirely false; at least this author had no such idea; see him, p. 238, 240, where our Editor, for R. Cantuariensis Episcopus, emends it himself: "E. i. e.

Et tamen falli hie loci auctorem nostrum existimo, vel saltem pro Westmostre, sive Westminster, quid aliud reponendum esse. nowSfyos quis forsitan Wigmore ma lit. At nihil temere muto." On the word Dvrseta he remarks thus, "vide num pro Dorcestria?" In the first place, there is no omission of any Abbat by Dr. Browne Willis, in Leland's Collectanea, 1. c. more
