"... a more ambitious work [than Strutt's The regal and ecclesiastical antiquities of England, and Horda-angel-cynnan], with fewer engravings, intended as a work of reference rather than a narrative history. Six volumes had been initially projected but only the first two were published (1777-8)."--Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.
