"Samuel Purchas (1577?-1626). ""A Learned English divine, and compiler of a valuable collection of travels... educated at Cambridge. In 1604 he was instituted vicar of Eastwood in Essex, but, leaving the cure of it to his brother, removed to London, the better to carry on the great work he had undertaken. He published the first volume in 1613, and the four last in 1625...
