Nicolas Tindal (1687 – 1774) was the translater and continuer of Paul de Rapin's History of England. His thirteen volume translation was first published in 1727, with an enlarged version containing notes, genealogical tables and maps of his own composition, published in 1732. Tindal was rewarded for his work by the presentation of a gold medal from Frederick, Prince of Wales, to whom he had decicated the second volume. In the 1750's, Tindall published his continuation of the series, bringing the work up to date with the reign of George II.

James Mynde (1702 - 1771) was a British engraver. Working in London, he owned a large studio, and could charge up to 60 guineas for an apprentice. He was responsible for numerous book illustrations and later became an engraver to the Royal Society.
