Author: Felltham, Owen:

Title: Resolues [Resolves] A Duple Century. The VI Edition [...] with a large Alphabeticall Table therunto.

Publication: London: Printed for Henry Seile [...] 1636.

Description: Small 8vo., pp. [vi] 448 [xxii] + engraved title-page. Without final blank, two small burnholes to one leaf (one marginal, one affecting one character). Browned and spotted, a few pencil marks, one marginal wormhole to first 15 leaves. Modern quarter dark brown calf with marbled paper boards, red morocco gilt label to spine. Ink inscription to first leaf recto (blank): "E Libris Matthew Goodfellow, Ex Dono Thom Dom Baron Wyndham, 1726."

The sixth edition of this popular collection of essays on moral topics, first published 1623, then with many additions in 1628. The inscription would seem to indicate that this copy was given to an acquaintance by Thomas, Baron Wyndham (1681-1745), Lord Chancellor of Ireland, though as he was only created Baron Wyndham in 1731, it is not an entirely straightforward assumption.
