In 2 vols. 8vo. Il. ls. “ There seems to be no repository of ancient literature in the empire which has escaped the industry of Mr. Vaughan. To the labours of this gentleman I have great obligations to acknowledge. His diligence has enabled him to ascertain the date of many of Wycliffe's performances with an approach to precision which had never before been attained, and thus to trace out, with greater success than any former writer, the progress and development of the Reformer's convictions.” – Professor Le Bas, in the Preface to his Life of Wycliffe.
