The present volume contains a calendar of the London Port Book for
1567/8, recording native and Hanse imports, together with a number of
other documents illustrating the port and trade of London in the early
years of Elizabeth I's reign. Nearly all of these are preserved in the Public
Record Office, and the London Record Society is indebted to the Keeper
of Public Records for permission to publish them.
Dr. Dietz has asked me to express his indebtedness to the University of
Glasgow for leave of absence, and a travel and maintenance grant which
enabled him to complete the volume.
