M. Broadley (bookplate) A rare original edition of the Cavalier Soldier's Vade Mecum. The first work within this volume is a famous rarity, a book of prayer compiled for use by the Cavalier's Army during the English Civil War and said to have been suppressed by Cromwell. In 1900, Edward Almack produced a facsimile of the work, claiming that only a single example was extant. "It is a small book of Prayer and Praise for the soldiers in the Cavalier Army. Probably it was soon found by the enemy and the issue of it quashed . The dignity and simplicity of the language of this little book are worthy of the best traditions of the Church of England" (Almack). Wing C4091D; ESTC R208556; cf. Almack, The Cavalier Soldier's Vade Mecum (London: 1900). Bookseller Inventory # 31487
