About this Item

First edition of pro-Royalist biographical sketches for "above a thousand Persons" killed during the English Civil Wars. Major figures discussed include King Charles I, Lord Herbert of Cherbury, Sir Kenelm Digby, Jeremy Taylor, and Inigo Jones and Sir Charles Lucas, among others, following a short essay on the "Preparatives to the last Civil War, from 1550 to 1640." Upon publication the book did not receive rave reviews ? Anthony Wood (1632?95), antiquary and historian of Oxford University, claimed there "are almost as many errors as lines," yet this text is an excellent example of how the losing side chose to interpret events during early post-war years (DNB online). Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Folio (27.7 cm; 11.75"). Frontis., [14], 502, 501?708, [2] pp. ESTC R3832; Wing (rev. ed.) L2642; On Lloyd, see: DNB online. 17th-century calf, raised bands ruled in blind with red gilt-lettered spine label, covers ruled and accented by fleurons in blind; abraded, especially corners and edges, joints (outside) cracked but holding. Light to moderate age-toning and soiling variously, faint to moderate waterstaining; glue action to first and last few leaves, remnant of bookseller description adhering to pastedown. Frontispiece torn at lower corner just touching plate's corner, a few other leaves with a corner or bit of lower margin lost not approaching text; short tears to title-page and elsewhere, pencilling on endpapers. Ex-library, as above: bookplate on pastedown, rubber-stamps on frontispiece, title-page, and two text leaves; call numbers on title-page verso, circulation materials and bookseller's label at back.
