Thomas Fuller (1608 – 16 August 1661) was an English churchman and historian. He is now remembered for his writings, particularly his Worthies of England, published in 1662 after his death. He was a prolific author, and one of the first English writers able to live by his pen. Fuller's work is well known for including the first biographical mention of William Shakespeare. This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.
