The Life Of Anthony à Wood (page 1/2)

[picture: Front Cover]

I have a two-volume set of the lives of Hearne and Wood; the woodcuts here are mostly from the first volume. which is The Life of Anthony à Wood From the Year 1632 to 1672, Written by Himself, and Published by Mr. Thomas Hearne.

This is also online at Google Books as The lives of those eminent antiquaries John Leland, Thomas Hearne, and again at here, although I think both copies are of the first volume only.
