Colchester: University of Essex Library, Harsnett H.a.36
Liber receptarum in theologia...
Trier: Henricus Bock, 1595
On both boards, centrepiece with 'R' to its left and 'B' to its right, and a gold-tooled fillet at edge, as seen also on Canterbury: Cathedral Library, W/K-3-60. On that volume, and the identification of the initials as those of Richard Bancroft, see James Carley's discussion. As on that printed book, there are the stubs (here merely residual) of cloth ties close to fore-edge on both boards. The one difference in this case from that book and its equivalents in the Harsnett collection is that the letters are placed very close to the centrepiece.
- Richard Bancroft (1544-1610), archbishop of Canterbury, 1604-10.
- Samuel Harsnett (1561-1631), archbishop of York, 1629-1631.
