Full title[edit]

"Gazophylacium Anglicanum – containing the derivation of English words, proper and common, each in an alphabet distinct : proving the Dutch and Saxon to be the prime fountains : and likewise giving the similar words in most European languages, whereby any of them may be indifferently well learned, and understood : fitted to the capacity of the English reader, that may be curious to know the original of his mother-tongue"
