'Mr Edwards, a London merchant, returned in the year 1652 from the Levant attended by his Greek servant, Pasqua Rosee. The many friends who called to welcome him home were offered a dish of a brew then little known in England, for which Mr Edwards had developed a taste during his stay abroad and which Pasqua prepared to perfection. Mr Edwards found his friends returning again and again at the hour at which he took coffee and at length, to recover his privacy, he was compelled to provide his servant with the means to open a coffee-house to which, Mr Edwards suggested, all those who wished to drink coffee might now repair.' Includes reproductions of flyers: 'The Womens Petition Against Coffee' and 'The Mens Answer to the Womens Petition Against Coffee'. (3214018). Bookseller Inventory # 119
