'The English Appropriator or Sacrilege condemned, by ... Bishops, by ... Divines, and by ... Lawyers of the church of England. Collected by John Blaxton, Priest [the last four words deleted].' The address 'to the Reader' and the preface, the first three leaves of which have been cut out, are signed by the author: the book is largely about tithes. The composition must be after 1634, since the author's book on Usury is referred to.
