Britannia, by William Camden

⌈Thus far, is a general Account of the Isle of Man, and of the Laws and Usages thereof, as they stood in the reign of King James the first. Which being much too short, and the state and manner of Places, Persons, and Things, having also been much alter’d since that time, I will here subjoin a very exact and particular Account of this Island, as it was drawn, at my request, by the present pious and learned Bishop thereof, Dr. Thomas Wilson, and courteously communicated to me by his Lordship, to be inserted in this Work, in order to supply the Defects of all former Accounts.
