by CROWNE, WILLIAM
London: Printed for Henry Seile, 1637, 1637. First edition. STC 6079; ESTC S109122. Text a little dust soiled; very good copy, with full margins.. Quarto, later blind-ruled brown calf period style, gilt lettering. An account of the diplomatic mission undertaken by Thomas Howard, the Earl of Arundel, to Germany and western Europe in 1636. Howard (1585-1646) was an important art collector and cultural ambassador, and this trip to Europe, one of many he made, is notable because among his travelling companions was the famous physician William Harvey (1578-1657), who used the trip to consult with leading medical men and to demonstrate his theory on the circulation of blood. The text also includes the synopsis of a play - "Pax in Anglia" - that was written and performed for Howard and his retinue in Prague. William Crowne (1617-1682) was later a prominent colonist in North America. Bookplate of Robert S. Pirie on the front paste-down. (Inventory #: 26978)
