        Nautical Manuscript Document Linked to Tobacco, Slavery, and the Calvert Barons - Maryland's Founding Family

      1662. Long Island Point, Baltimore, Maryland, 1662. Signed Manuscript note penned for Captain Miles Cooke by the ship's purser William Gordon, whilst on Cooke's ship 'The Maryland Merchant' having returned from a tobacco trade voyage, granting permission to Captain Isaac Tully to disembark the vessel. Single leaf, laid watermarked paper, written recto only, measuring approximately 21 x 14 cm. Creasing, mild foxing, otherwise very good condition, noteworthy for its age and time at sea. Protocol such as this requisition for boarding or disembarking a vessel was common practice at the time. Addressed to Capt. Isaac Tully Esq., the note reads as follows: "Sir, Upon application made by Capt. Cooke You are hereby permitted to come on shore till further Order I am Sir with penonal esteem Your humble servt. William Gordon [To:] Capt. Isaac Tully Esq. Saturday, 5 oClock P.M." Captain Miles Cooke was a British Rear-Admiral, involved for several years as Merchant in Trans-Atlantic trade between England and the Province of Maryland, which was then a proprietary colony of the English Lord Baltimore. Cooke's ship was named 'The Maryland Merchant". In 1672 Cooke was discharged from some seafaring business in which Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore, was also implicated pending either the verdict of another trial or the state of his vessel. Cooke died four years later in 1676. Resident of Rediffe, Surrey, on 26 February 1661 Captain Miles Cooke married Dorothy Underwood, of Whitechapel, Middlesex. Together they lived in Talbot County, Maryland at "Cooke’s Hope", which had been granted to him in 1659, and was located next to Thomas Hutchinson, tanner, of Talbot Co., Maryland. Cooke was granted the land in the same year that he seized the St. George of Bantry. In 1682 John Edmondson, merchant to Thomas Hutchinson, bought under the seal of Samuel Cooke, heir of Miles Cook and the seals of Henry and William Coursey, attorneys for the widow of Miles Cook, 200 acres called "Cookes Mannor." Captain Isaac Tully was also involved in the trade, and in despatching letters and goods between Calvert family members between the UK and America. As seen in the Calvert papers, held by the Maryland Historical Society, Cooke and Tully worked hand in hand, most likely the latter employed by the former. Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore (1637-1715), (grandson of George Calvert, 1st Baron Baltimore, founder of Maryland) was governor of Maryland from 1661 to 1676, and inherited the colony in 1675 upon the death of his father, then becoming second proprietor. He was heavily involved in trying to mend the growing economic problems of Maryland's tobacco industry, working directly with merchants such as Cooke. His legacy also entails an injurious decision which perpetuated long-standing slavery. Following are excerpts from letters by the latter mentioned Charles Calvert to his father, Cecilius Calvert, 2nd Baron Baltimore, endorsed by Captain Miles Cooke, published in 'The Calvert Papers, Issues 28-30" which illuminate a voyage and subsequent scandal regarding a shipment of inferior tobacco in 1662, involving the two parties, Cooke and Tully.. Signed.

        Metamorphosis et Historia Naturalis Insectorum Vol I. & II

      Medioburgi [Middleburgh]: Jacobum Fierensium, 1662 An extremely rare early work on the metamorphosis of insects. Jan Goedart originally wrote in Dutch and these 2 volumes are the first published translations of his work. Vol I is hand coloured. Vol I was translated by Johannis de Mey and Vol II by Paul Veezaerdt. A third volume was published after his death. Goedart set up, observed and documented a series of 'experiments' which showed that insects change their appearance - and that the egg, the caterpillar and the butterfly can be the same animal rather than spontaneously appearing. These 2 volumes are in what appears to be contemporary full leather. They are not matching but they have been recently repaired to reback the spine on Vol I and and provide a new spine to Vol II, and they have matching title labels. Vol I is an exceptionally rare hand coloured copy. With title page in red and black inks and with scorpion design; hand coloured decorative title page; preface with decorative initial capital 15pp; Commentary by W Quirinus R 3pp; dedication by Joannis de May with decorative heraldic design 8pp; half title; text and plates 236pp. With 63 plates - occasionally separately numbered images on the same plate. The binding has raised bands and the remains of gilt tooling on the spine and some gilt bordering to the boards. It is sound but with scuffing and wear. Internally the volume is in very good condition. There is a little age browning, the odd spot and nibbled page edge, but the plate colouring is bright, and the text clear and clean. Vol II published by Jacobum Fierensium and Johannem Martinum in 1667 in Middleburgh, has plain plates. These are not as decorative to look at, but do show the fine quality of the engravings. With title page with scorpion design and the signature of Simon Blenckarns written across the design. Small stamp of Janson and Sons at the base of the reverse of the title page. Introduction by Paul Veezaerdt 25pp; preface 3pp; note by F v Kuel 1p; text and plates 259pp. With 42 plain plates. The binding has raised bands to the spine and is plain with 2 blind stamped lines on the boards. It is in poorer condition than Vol I, with more wear to corners where there is some loss. The paper quality is poorer and there is a lot of browning to text pages and occasional loss from page edges. Occasional spotting.

        Sententie gepronuncieert den 25 jan. 1662 tot Amsterdam iegens Isaac Coeymans, Koopman burger der selver stadt

      Rotterdam: Floris Willemsen, 1662. (DUTCH WEST INDIA COMPANY) 4to. 7 pp. Sewn. Slightly age-darkened, but sound. Asher 315 . A very rare pamphlet related to the Dutch West India Company and its settlements in Guinea, offering a glimpse of the growing competition among European powers for the slave trade between West Africa and the West Indies. Competition was particularly sharp between the powerful Dutch West India Company and the Danish African Company, which had also recently established settlments in Guinea. Against this background emerges the strange story of one Isaac Coymans, an Amsterdam merchant who plotted to murder the settlers of a Dutch colony and turn it over to the Danish Crown. He was tried and convicted, and this rare pamphlet publishes the sentence of the court: Coymans was imprisoned for six years, banished for life from the 7 Dutch Provinces, and fined 20,000 florins. It is rare: OCLC locates only one copy in the United States (Harvard)

        The History of the Worthies of England.

      London: Printed by J.G.W.L. and W.G. 1662 . First Edition [with the Index also in 1st. edition] Folio, engr. portrait by D. Loggan, + 3 leaves (title, Dedication, To the Reader) + 494 leaves (text) + 6 leaves (Index), light waterstain on title some foxing (occasionally heavy) and browning throughout (as usual), otherwise a very good copy, bound in full antique-style calf, 3-line fillet borders in blind, morocco label on spine. The pagination in this work is exceedingly erratic, and the signatures are not much better. For example sigs. E and K are only 3 leaves, Rr, Ss, and Zzz[z] are not required at all, and many others are 2 leaves instead of 4. A very full collation, both by signature and by pagination, is given by Strickland Gibson with which the present copy has been carefully compared. It is warranted complete. Some copies contain an index which was first printed by Olive Payne in 1737 on 6 leaves [as in the present copy], and reprinted by W. Pickering on 5 leaves c. 1825 "The Worthies is among other things a dictionary of national biography, a series of county histories, a topographical and historical gazetteer, a guide-book, and a dictionary of proverbs..... Fuller was conscientious, according to his light, in trying to check authorities. Besides, he jogged indefatigably about the country to inspect public records, manuscripts, places, and buildings, and to question natives and surviving relatives... The Worthies is a lineal descendant of the mediaeval encyclopedias. Apart from the lists of sheriffs and gentry, we skip at our risk, for Fuller's best goods may be under the counter. Thus we read, to the greater glory of God, about the Vicar of Bray; the use of malt to make drink in Derbyshire ('a master-piece indeed'); the marriage customs of Lapland; Devonshire strawberries and cream; the Dunmow flitch...." [D.Bush: English Literature in the Earlier 17th. Century. O.U.P. 1945.] "But it is of persons that he [Fuller] writes most delightfully. His anecdotes are full of lightning sketches of Elizabethan and Jacobean characters caught off their guard...." [W. Addison: Worthy Doctor Fuller. ] A rich fund of information and anecdote, still entertaining today, Fuller's Worthies is the unacknowledged source of a surprising number of phrases and fables current to this day, perhaps the most famous being the story of Sir Walter Raleigh laying down his cloak for Queen Elizabeth. Fuller is credited with coining the word 'biographist' to describe himself. Wing F 2440Gibson, Strickland (editor): Bibliography of...Thomas Fuller in Papers of Oxford. Bib. Soc. 1935 vol.

        Difiniciones de la Orden y Cavalleria de Alcantara con la Historia y Origen de Ella

      1662 [colophon 1663]. Madrid. Diego Diaz de la Carrera. In 4to. Contemporary full vellum, spine lettered in ink, recased, very nicely done, endpapers renewed, very attractive binding. A remarkably fresh and clean copy, only a few leaves browned, else a perfect copy. Second edition. Engraved title page with portrait of Phillip II by Pedro de Villafranca. One of the most important Chivalry Orders of Spain, the Order of Alc?ara was founded in 1154 in Leon under the name of Orden de San Juli?de Pereiro. It´s history is deeply linked to that of the Muslims in Spain. In the early 13th century, the defense of the city of Alc?ara was passed on from Calatrava to the recently founded Order of San Juli?by Alphonse IX. The relevance of this Orders –along with that of Santiago and Calatrava-, is mainly military, this, because the middle ages lacked of standing armies and this Orders provided that. In fact, the constant defense of cities from the Muslims was usually provided by these Orders. Bound –as often- with Privilegia Militae Sancti Iuliani de Pereiro. The Orders, besides the obvious military character, also were Religious Orders, and amongst their goals, the preservation and defense of the Christian faith was found. Illustrated with an oval portrait of Phillip II on title page and a full page image of the Virgin. Salva, 1590.

        Hertforida Comitatus, vernacule Hertfordshire

      [Amsterdam: Blaeu, 1662]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour and gilt embellishments, mild discolouration at center fold, overall very good condition. 20 1/4 x 26 inches. A handsome example of Blaeu's English county map with exceptional original colour and highlights in gold This beautifully presented county map of Hertfordshire from Johan Blaeu's Atlas Mayor, sino Cosmographia Blavania...is from the only Spanish edition of this great work. The map itself is based on John Speed's map, published in 1612, though without the town plans. Blaeu's map includes the coats of arms of two prominent families. The title cartouche illustrates Hertfordshire's relationship to London in that the county supplied corn and hay to the pleading Londoners pictured on the right hand side of the title. Because of its proximity to London, Hertfordshire had many country houses, reflected in some of the placenames on the map: Waterford Hall, Aldbery Hall, Shingle Hall, and, of course, Waymer Castle.

Beige matting. Frame shows some slight wear. A beautiful map. John (Joan) and Cornelius Blaeu were the sons of Amsterdam Cartographer, instrument maker, publisher and Bookseller Willem Jans Zoon Blaeu. The brothers collaborated together on several works including the Atlas Major in 1662, which is likely where this map came from. Blaeu was appointed the official cartographer to the Dutch East India Company 1638-1673. This map shows the area from Finland to Siberia and beyond the Jenisej River and south to the Volga River, with Kazan and Novogorod. A partial coastline of Novaya Zemla is visible at the top of the map. The map is filled with mountains and forests with deer, bear and other animals throughout, all hand-coloured in an intricate and expert manner. The work was compiled from manuscripts brought back from Russia by Isaac Massa..

Fitzgerald. ---- Bibl. Deutsches Mus., Libri rari 25; Warner, Sky explored p. 16, no. 1a; Houzeau-L. 15252 rem.; Zinner, Instrumente 245. - First edition of this collection. Jakob Bartsch (1600-1633) married Kepler's daughter Susanna and was his father-in-law's assistant in his later years. The present work contains a complete cosmographical handbook with 23 worked problems for the student (first published in 1624), a perpetual solar ephemeris by Laurentius Eichstadius, a planetary ephemeris for 25 years from 1662, a star catalogue based on Brahe, Kepler and Severinus, a catalogue of European cities with their coordinates, tables of right and oblique ascensions, a table of polar elevations for Nuremberg by Cyprian Leowitz, and an historical preface by the editor Andreas Goldmayer (d. 1665), astrologer and calendar-maker in Nuremberg, giving a history of the great astronomers of Nuremberg in some detail including lists of their publications. According to Warner, the positions of the stars charted on Bartsch's three maps are not simply based on a Ptolemaic or Tychonic source -- in the text, he discusses the positions of Brahe, Keyser and Habrecht, and in the star catalogue those of Copernicus, Brahe and Bayer. The date of the present publication, variously reported as 1661 or 1662, is conjectured based on the starting point of the planetary tables, and the use of 1661 in the example on the last page. Charles Bernard (1650-1711) was elected Surgeon at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London in 1686 and was also Serjeant Surgeon to Queen Anne from 1702. The catalogue of his library numbered 2,873 lots and the sale occupied many days. Jonathan Swift notes in his Journal to Stella that he viewed the exhibition and attended the sale but found that "they were in the middle of the physick books, so I bought none; and they are so dear, I believe I shall buy none ..." though he attended the sale three more times and actually did buy something (cited in J.S. Finch, A Catalogue of the Libraries of Sir Thomas Browne and Dr. Edward Browne, Leiden: 1986, p. 11)..

        Memorial… pour la deffense de la reputation, de la dignite et de la personne de Dom Bernardino de Cardenas, evesque de Paraguay dans les Indes. Contre les religieux de la Compagnie de Jesus. Et pour repondr?ux Memoriaux par le P. Julien de Pedraca

      The first French edition. 1662. Amsterdam. The Elzeviers. In 12vo (127 mm x 74 mm). 3 [blank] + 322 + 2 [blank]. In 18th century calf, spine heavily gilt in compartments, morocco title label lettered in gilt, lightly worn, hinges starting, front board becoming detached. A very fresh and clean copy, excellent condition. First French edition. A highly important document about the Jesuits history on Paraguay. By right, the Bishop of Paraguay had authority over the Jesuits at the head of the missions or Reductions –mainly located within the area of jurisdiction of the Bishop-, however, due to the natural difficulties in exercising these right, the Bishop conferred power to the superiors of the missions. c1640, this normal flow of jurisdiction was harshly interrupted with the actions of Bernardino de Cardenas and only enhanced by a memorial written by Julian de Pedraza accusing the Bishop of generating a general dislike for the Jesuits by creating false charges and even provoking attacks upon them; as consequence, his actions, general dislike and antipathy for the Jesuits brought confusion to the region and nearly ruined the Reductions. The author, who was Procurador de la Provincia del Tucum? Paraguay y Buenos Aires, replies in favor of the Bishop and gives reasons for the dislike of the Bishop towards the Jesuits. Of particular interest, the argument regarding the natives attack to Asunci?arguably lead by the Jesuits and causing the Bishop to be expelled from the city. The controversy caused was such that the work was forbidden in America, with most copies of the Spanish edition possibly having being destroyed. Printer´s woodcut device of a sphere on title page. Provenance, possibly the copy sold at Sotheby Parke-Bernet (Sale 3468-188). Palau, 43893. Sabin, 10606.

        Medea Vendicativa. Drama di Foco. Attione terza degli Applausi fatti per la Nascita Dell?Altezza Ser.ma Di Massimiliano Emanuele, Primogenito Elett.le delle Seren.me Elett.li Alt.ze di Ferdinando Maria et Enrieta maria Adelaid, Duchi dell?un

      Munich: Gioann Ieklino, 1662. Very rare first edition of this spectacular firework opera, the final part of a trilogy of operas first performed in Munich in September 1662 to celebrate the birth of Massimilio Emanuele, first son of Ferdinando Maria, duke of Bavaria and imperial elector, and Henriette Adelaide, Princess of Savoy. Eight folding plates document the sumptuous set designs by Francesco Santurini with elaborate fireworks and a staged naval battle.Ferdinand Maria and Henriette Adelaide were both fourteen years old when they were married by proxy in 1650. Their first child, a girl, was born ten years later, followed by a boy in 1662. In celebration of the new heir, "the Munich court organized a festivity which outdid in scale and variety virtually any other 17th century festivity anywhere, those at Vienna, Florence and Paris included. Not only was the whole town illuminated and the populace treated to wine from specially erected fountains, as well as bread, gold coins and commemorative medals, but the court witnessed and took part in an extraordinary spectacle." (Watanabe-O?Kelly, Triumphall shews, p.90)At its center was a trilogy consisting of the dramatic opera Fedra Incoronata, a tournament opera Antiopa Giustificata and the present work. The libretti for all three were by Count Pietro Paolo Bissari, who was joined by the court composer Johann Kasper Kerll (MGG VII, 871 ff.) and the Italian theatre designer Santorini. (Thieme/B. XXIX, 452 f) A narrative thread runs through all three dramas, and each was performed in a different locale, over a period of eight days. The plot of Medea vendicativa sees Medea calling for vengeance on Theseus, who failed in the tournament that was at the center of the previous opera. Set in the open air on a floating stage on the river Isar, "most of the scenes end with the set bursting into flames, and the whole piece culminates in a naval battle, made possible by moving the front of the stage aside. All round the stage, in the Isar, rockets, cannon and fireworks o fall kinds explode. The piece ends with the illumination of the huge structure behind the stage. This has a triumphal arch in the middle. Above the arch and to either side of it glow the initials F.M. ... while out of two towers on either side shoot fireworks as well as all round out of the water. The initials of Ferdinand Maria on top, those of Max Emanuel below, between them the twin images of Christ and Hercules ? the points being made here about the legitimacy, claims to power and dynastic continuity of the Wittelsbachs could not emerge more clearly." (Watanabe-O?Kelly, p. 94)"Not only is each individual part of the trilogy lavish to a degree, but this interweaving of three types of event and three locations into one huge spectacle is unique at this date and only emulated once, though on a much smaller scale, by Louis XIV two years later in the Plaisirs de l?isle enchantée." (Watanabe-O?Kelly The librettist, Pietro Paulo Conte Bissari (1595-1663) was an Italian diplomat and man of letters. He wrote the libretti to a number of other operas (see NBG, VI, 139-140). The score was written by Johann Kaspar Kerll (1627-93), a German composer and organist active in Austria and widely admired as performer.

        Metamorphosis et Historia Naturalis Insectorum. Cum commentariis D. Joannis de Mey...

      Medioburgi, J, Fierens, (1662--1669). 3 volumes bound in one. 8vo (152 x 100mm). pp. (30), 236; (32), 259; (16), 159, with 3 engraved frontispieces, 1 engraved portrait of Goedaert, 1 engraved coat of arms and 152 engraved plates printed on 126 leaves. Contemporary calf, spine in 5 compartments (rubbed). The first Latin edition published in the same years as the Dutch edition. Johannes Goedaert (1617-1668) was a famous Dutch landscape and flower painter who lived all his life in Middelburg. "No botanical or zoological drawings are extant. An impression of them however is conveyed by his 'Metamorphosis Naturalis' with its 126 superb engravings. The book describes the results of his investigation into the metamorphosis of insects, accompanied by a large amount of original observations, some of which were prompted by experiments with his own cultures. The book stood model for several other celebrated treatises on the subject, for example Maria Sibylla Merian" (Segal, Flowers and nature, p. 198). A small number of pages somewhat browned as is mostly the case with this book. Provenance: Bookplate of John Cookney on inside frontcover and old signature of D'Apples on title. Nissen ZBI, 1602.

        Tractatus Physiologicus de Pulchritudine. Juxta ea quae de Sponsa in Canticis Canticorum mystice pronunciantur.

      Bruxelles, Francisci Foppens, 1662. Small 8vo. Later modest half cloth (ab. 1800). Engraved half-page illustration to title-page and 28 half-page engravings in the text (phrenological portraits of women and animals). Light browning and a small spot to title-page, as well as a small marginal repair (no loss). A faint dampstain to inner upper margins of the last 4 leaves. Otherwise clean. An old stamp to front free end-paper, to verso of title-page, and to inside of back board. Small handwritten numbers to bottom of title-page. (8), 60 pp.. Scarce first and only edition of this highly interesting treatise on female physiognomy and beauty, which is important in being one of the few sources from this period that provide us with information on many cultural phenomena that have to do with beauty and the role of women in society, such as the mythologies of skin color. The work places itself in a tradition that goes back to della Porta's work on physiognomy from 1586; as Porta, Vaenius relies on the dual axis of humoral theory and animal analogies as means of determining mental states and traits. The emphasis is on fixed facial structures which reveal to us the mental and intellectual states of the person. Vaenius, however, has a different aim with his work. He not only wishes to explain how to determine human characters from facial structures, he wishes to determine the very essence of female beauty and does so by explaining and depicting proportional structures as well as explaining phenomena that are of great importance to our understanding of the social culture of the period, explaining for instance the place of black people within this framework. The physiognomic explanations are accompanied by fine engravings (one for instance showing a black woman, others showing animal heads next to human female ones).Apart from its cultural importance and singular character (Brunet: "le titre de l'ouvrage en indique la singularité"), the work is renowned for these beautiful, delicate engravings (see e.g. Charles Nodier's praise as well as Brunet's) that are quite unlike any other illustrations we know of.

        Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula

      Amsterdam: Jan Blaeu, [1662]. Copper-engraved map, with original colour. Latin text on verso. Skillful marginal repair to center fold. 19 1/2 x 24 inches. An aesthetic chord of triumph and the culmination of Dutch cartography. This is the new world map prepared by Blaeu for the eleven volume Atlas Maior of 1662. Unlike its predecessor with its marginal city views and native peoples, this is a double hemispheric map with the classical gods that personify each planet and Apollo, the Sun. Each planetary deity is portrayed with his astrological attributes: Mercury with flying cap and caduceus; Venus with cupid at her side; Mars armed for battle; Jupiter with thunderbolts; and Saturn brooding and holding a flag of a six pointed star (a symbol in Saturn worship). Just below to the left and right are portraits of Claudius Ptolemy and Amerigo Vespucci. At the base are the four allegorical personifications of the seasons, each on a chariot. All of which place Earth in a larger astrological and temporal context, and make the map an exaltation of the Western European achievements. This was the key to Blaeu's Great Atlas: the culminating work of 100 years of Dutch cartography and 300 years of European seafaring. It is surely one of the most beautiful world maps ever made.

        Maritima Brasiliae Universae

      Amsterdam, 1662. Copperplate engraving with hand color Framed size: 32 3/8" x 36 3/8"; Sheet size: 21" x 24 ¾" ca. 1662 This separately issued and rare coastal map is derived from Joan Blaeu's original, multi-sheet, 1647 wall map of Dutch Brazil. Blaeu's complete work was based on new topographical information gathered by Dutch explorers and a 1643 map produced by Georg Marcgraf. Marcgraf's original map not only featured a depiction of the northeast coast of Brazil (an area controlled by the Dutch West Indies Company from 1524 to 1654), but stunning illustrations by Frans Post of lavish sugar mill plantations and scenes of aboriginal peoples and Dutch colonists interacting peacefully. This particular map represents the exquisite lower-left sheet of Blaeu's original wall map and was most likely separately re-engraved, re-titled, and re-issued along with a number of Blaeu's other Brazilian coastal sheets, for the 1662 publication of Atlas Maior. .

        Hudibra, First, Second, Third and Subsequent Parts. First Edition, First Issue

      Butler, Samuel. "Hudibras. The First Part. Written in the time of the late Wars". [4], 268 pages. First Authorized Edition, first issue, with "Saint" in imprint spelled out in full; errata is present, lacking the imprimatur leaf (dated Nov. 11, 1662), and all textual errors uncorrected. London: Printed by J.G. for Richard Marriot, 1663. [bound with] "Hudibras. The Second Part. By the Authour of the First". [4], 216 pages. Also, third part dated 1678. Bound in exceptionally fine binding and in very good condition with the bookplates of Daniel Henry Holmes, an avid book collector. This edition certainly is one of the rarest being that it is a first issue. A pirate copy came out the year before in 1662 and all proceeds from the sale of the book by the thief were recovered by Butler. Collation is as follows: [2 blank], TP, A3-8, B8-I8, K-R8, 2nd TP, B-I8, K-O8, P4, 3rd TP, A-I8, K-R8, S7, [2 Blank].Hudibras by Samuel Butler is a critique of the English Civil War and pokes at the Puritans and their military zeal to spread the word of God with Bible and Pike. This attractive printing and wonderfully bound copy of Butler's mock epic in octosyllabic couplets, its three parts first published in 1663, 1164 and 1678. Modeled after Don Quixote, the work satarizes the hypocrisy and self-seeking of the Presbyterians and Independents represented by the title character, Hudibras and his servant Ralpho, demonstrating the pairs, greed, stupidity, cowardice and duplicity. Butler, a Colonel in the Cromwellian army is involved in any number of various comic misadventures and Butler is squarely pointing at Oliver Cromwell and his lot as Butler was and remained a confirmed Royalist and Anglican (King Henry VIII's Anglican Church).This mock epic became the rage of its time and was followed by nearly 27 editions that included, later engraved illustrations to highlight the comedic adventures of the two. In the end of this volume are also found the Letter from the Knight to his Lady and a corresponding letter from the Lady to the Knight.
