History of the Worthies of England


Quick Reference

By T. Fuller (1662).

The work is a kind of gazetteer of England, in which the author takes the counties one by one, describes their physical characteristics, natural commodities, and manufactures, with quaint comments on each, some of his own aphorisms, some proverbial. After these come short biographies of the local saints, Protestant martyrs, prelates, statesmen, writers, etc., and lists of the gentry and sheriffs.
