Shelfmark W/I-6-1
John Jewel. Works of ... John Iewell, ... newly set forth with ... his life.. London: 1609.
Gold-tooled lettering on front board: EDWARD GWYNN.
Inscription on verso of front free endpaper: Precium xxiij s.
A typical binding from the library of Edward Gwynn, possibly acquired through Bishop Peter Gunning. The indication of price has been wrongly attributed to William Somner; it mat be that of Edward Gwynn or the second-hand price when his books were sold after his death in c. 1645.
