About this Item

Published anonymously and often attributed to Fletcher and occasionally to William Raybould, this is one of three editions printed in 1660, the first year of the work's printing. It sometimes later appeared under the variant title A Full View of the Life and Actions (military and civil) of Oliver Cromwel. In addition to telling of Cromwell's political life and his wars in Ireland, Scotland, and England, this offers a section on the Protectorate that has much to say about his policies and military actions in the Caribbean, especially the taking of Jamaica from Spain. The title-page is printed in black and red and this copy retains the vertical half-title on A1r, "O. Cromwel?s Life." Provenance: Pacific School of Religion (properly deaccessioned). Small 8vo (13.5 cm; 5.25"). [4] ff., 459 [i.e., 359, [1] pp., port. in facsimile. ESTC R18473; Wing (rev. ed.) F1334. 19th-century quarter leather, binding much rubbed and abraded; lacks the portrait, supplied in facsimile. Age-toned; title-leaf and another leaf with an old cello-tape repair and resulting staining, last leaf torn in upper outer corner with small loss of a few letters. Top margins of some leaves trimmed with loss of page numbers and running heads; other leaves trimmed into heads and pages numbers. Priced for its faults. Bookseller Inventory # 36184
