A biographical history of England, from Egbert the Great to the Revolution: consisting of characters disposed in different classes, and adapted to a methodical catalogue of engraved British heads: intended as an essay towards reducing our biography to system, and a help to the knowledge of portraits: interspersed with variety of anecdotes, and memoirs of a great number of persons, not to be found in any other biographical work: with a preface, shewing the utility of a collection of engraved portraits to supply the defect, and answer the various purposes, of medals: by the Rev. J. Granger, vicar of Shiplake, in Oxfordshire.

London: Printed for T. Davies, in Russel-Street; J. Robson, Bond-Street; G. Robinson, Pater-Noster-Row; T. Becket, T. Cadell, and T. Evans, in the Strand, 1775.
