Note: The Contemporaries of Thomas More Bibliography is a very extensively revised and augmented version of an unpublished bibliography of the Early English Renaissance and Reformation that I compiled while I was working on my Ph. D. Dissertation. Any comments, corrections, suggested additions or queries can be sent to the compiler and editor at firstname.lastname@example.org
