Provenance: ‘Bibl. Thule' on [*1r] of item 1. Richard Towneley (1629-1707); armorial book-plate, dated 1702, on [*1v] of item 1: see Howe, Book Plates, 29653. Ware, Hertfordshire, St Edmund's College; Charles Townley (1737-1805), great-great-grandson of Richard Towneley, was educated at the English College at Douai, which was closed at the French Revolution, and combined with the Old Hall Green school at Ware in 1793, under the name of St Edmund's College; see Independent Schools' Yearbook 1991, 337; this book, and others bearing Richard Towneley's book-plate, may have reached the college through him, although Edwin Burton, Catalogue of Books in the Libraries at St Edmund's College, Old Hall, Printed in England and of Books Written by Englishmen Printed Abroad to the Year 1640 (Ware, 1902), p. iv, suggests that they may have come via Bishop James Talbot (†1790). Purchased from St Edmund's College in 1965; note [by David Rogers] on the verso of the front endleaf.
