'A collection of the antiquities, privileges, customs, etc., of the manor and borough of New Woodstock in the county of Oxford', (or 'Hints for a history of Woodstock') from the earliest times to about 1770. This is a popular uncritical account of Woodstock, perhaps written for a guide-book: hardly any documents are quoted.
