Britannia antiqua illustrata: or, The antiquities of ancient Britain, derived from the Phœenicians :
wherein the original trade of this island is discovered, the names of places, offices, dignities, as likewise the idolatry, language, and customs of the primitive inhabitants are clearly demonstrated from that nation, many old monuments illustrated, and the commerce with that people, as well as the Greeks, plainly set forth and collected out of approved Greek and Latin authors. Together with a chronological history of this kingdom, from the first traditional beginning, until the year of our Lord 800, when the name of Britain was changed into England; faithfully collected out of the best authors, and disposed in a better method than hitherto hath been done; with the antiquities of the Saxons, as well as Phœnicians, Greeks, and Romans. The first volume. By Aylett Sammes, of Christ's Colledge in Cambridge. Since, of the Inner-Temple.
