16 Ten Scarce Books in English Literature. The Clarendon Society's Reprints.
Clarendon Historical Society ; Various Clarendon Historical Society [c.1890] 1890 Hard Cover Good 8vo - 9" Tall 
n.d. Bound volume of ten Clarendon Historical Society reprints from the 1880s. The titles contained within the volume are: (i) 'An Ordinance Appointing Commissioners for Approbation of Publique Preachers' (1673). (ii) 'Twenty Lookes Over All the Round-Heads That Ever Lived in the World' (1643). (iii) 'Seditious Preachers, Ungodly Teachers' (1709). (iv) 'Memoirs of the Chevalier De St. George, with some Private Passages of the Life of the Late King James II' (1712). (v) 'The Several Declarations Made In Council Concerning the Birth of the Prince of Wales' (1688). (vi) 'A Faithful Memorial of that Remarkable Meeting of Many Officers of the Army in England, at Windsor Castle, in the Year 1648' (1659). (vii) 'A Miraculous Victory Obtained by the Right Honorable Ferdinando Lord Fairfax, Against the Army Under the Command of the Earl of Newcastle at Wakefield in Yorkshire' (1643). (viii) 'Colchester Teares: Affecting & Afflicting City & Country' (1648). (ix) 'A Letter from an English Traveller at Rome to His Father' (1721). (x) 'A King and No King: Or, the Best Argument for a Just Title. Being the Present Case of Great Britain, Briefly Consider'd in a Seasonable Address to the People' (1716). All the pamphlets were limited to 120 large paper and 400 small paper copies. They seem to have been bound together in no real order - the pamphlets are separately paginated at the head of the page, and the numbering at the foot of the pages is not consecutive. The binding is pink cloth that is a little faded to the spine and the edges of the boards. There is a previous owner's bookplate on the front pastedown. The pages are age-tanned and there is some scattered foxing. The last page has a heavy diagonal crease and has a piece missing from the bottom corner (not affecting the text). 1890. 038727
