The first English epitome of Dugdale's great work; the Monasticon was originally published in three volumes Latin in 1655-73. James Wright (1643-1713) was a barrister at Middle Temple and a significant antiquarian himself, author of an important history of Rutland which he produced with Dugdale's encouragement. He dedicates the work to William Bromley of Warwickshire (1664-1732): "Warwickshire has certainly produced two of the most famous and deserving Writers, in their several ways, that England can boast of; a Dugdale, and a Shakespear, both Williams; a name that has been of eminent Grace to this County in many instances: nor will it ever cease to be so while you are living" (2nd leaf verso).
