Henry Foulis became a sub-rector of Lincoln College in 1667. He was warmly attached to the church of England, and attacked with equal venom by the Presbyterians and papists. His death in 1669 was 'occasioned by a generous and good-natured intemperance'. This volume was his second book. The delay in publication after his death was caused by a 'knavish bookseller'. Notes for other works were burnt by Foulis on his deathbed. Anthony a Wood was an intimate friend, responsible for the quotes above, and also made a catalogue of Foulis's library.
