In the preparation of this work the authors have pre-eminently to acknowledge the assistance they have derived from the treasures of the British Museum. Next to that vast storehouse of literature they are indebted to the Bodleian Library. On the shelves of Dr. Williams' Library and of Sion College have been found many theological and other works of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries which are wanting elsewhere ; and the Guildhall and London Institution Libraries have afforded the authors the use of many valuable books. From the London Library, in St. James' Square, they have been able to take to their own homes many of the most valuable works of reference, and by this means they have pursued their studies during those months of the year in which they are practically excluded by the nature of their daily labours from entering the library of the British Museum. To the officers of the whole of these institutions they tender their warmest thanks for the constant assistance they have received in their laborious undertaking.
Lastly thanks are due to a large number of persons, whose names cannot here be enumerated, for supplying information in furtherance of this work. To many gentlemen who will not find any references to the matter they have furnished, the explanation is necessary that their communications arrived too late to be printed in this volume. Such notices however have been carefully treasured and they will appear with many additional facts in the supplement to the second volume.
The authors now dismiss the toil of years with the earnest request that any persons who are in a position to furnish additional information or corrections will obligingly communicate with them.
