Annalia Dubrensia upon the yeerley celebration of Mr Robert Dovers Olimpick Games upon Cotswold Hills. [Dr Dover's reprint of the 1636 original]

      Printed by Robert Raworth for Mathewe Walbancke, London 1736 - Copper plate engraving as frontispiece. 71 unnumbered pages. This is the 18th century reprint, called Dr Dover's reprint, as it has on page [4] the lines - Dr Dover thought it his Duty to perpetuate the Memory of that Good Man his Grandfather. ESTC online T192037 which dates the reprint to 1720?, others suggest 1736, the centenary of the original publication. Light browning and some spotting. Bound in full 19th century blue morocco, some wear and fading, this has been rebacked with the original spine laid down. All page edges are gilt. Armorial bookplate to the front pastedown of Kerr, 1860 + bookseller's description tipped in - priced at 2 guineas. Tipped in at the front is an autograph letter signed by FA Hyett, the Gloucestershire bibliographer, dated October 1893 explaining which edition this copy is and talking of the rarity of the editions. An ink note to one of the front end papers incorrectly identifies the edition, but this has been corrected by Hyett with an initialled pencil note beneath. Pencil lines to the margins. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
