First edition. Grindal (1519-1583) was both a church and political leader of sixteenth-century England. Strype (1643-1787), also a clergyman, apparently inherited a collection of manuscripts and letters from which he wrote a number of works important for the study of sixteenth-century political and ecclesiastical England.
