In 1629 Owen Wynne of Gwydir purchased a collection of alchemical manuscripts and printed books remarkable for their number and range, and comparable in character to the corresponding classes of Dr John Dee's library. This volume examines the details and importance of that purchase and offers a glimpse of the second-hand bookstalls clustered in Duck Lane and Little Britain.
