Important English Texts

 The history hits just keep coming!
Special Collections has acquired a 1587 text by John Jewel, A Defence of the Apologie of the Churche of Englande.
This important work reveals the variety of the conflicts involved in the coming of the Protestant Reformation to England.

We are also pleased to report that the library now has the Glossarium archiaologicum from 1687 by Sir Henry Spelman.
This edition is considered the best version of the first English dictionary of legal terms, and it cemented Spelman's reputation as the first scholar of English philology.
