Wotton's short view of George Hickes's grammatico-critical and archeological treasury of the ancient northern languages with some notes, by a lover of the ancient northern literature, and an appendix to the notes, faithfully and intirely translated into English from the Latin original, by Maurice Shelton, of Barmingham Hall in the county of Suffolk, Esquire, one of His Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the said county, &c. To which are added by the same translator. Other curious and proper notes for a further illustration of the text, a short appendix of notes of correction, &c. and a dedication to the Right Honourable James Retnolds, Esq; Lord Chief Baron of his Majesty's Court of Exchequer, at West-Minster. No sort of learning can be a burthen to any man; that certainly is the most useful and pleasant, which relates to the language, laws, and customs of our own country, &c
