Abstract

This edition of John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester’s Poems on Several Occasions was given by Gilbert Hobbs to Arscott Bickford (d.1771), son of William Arscott. William Glynn of Glynn, of Cornwall, also owned the book. According to a note within, Glynn was related to the Bickfords through marriage via the Prideaux family. Importantly, Esmond de Beer obtained, either by gift or purchase, some hundreds of books from Iolo Aneurin Williams (1890–1962), the English book collector who collected bad eighteenth century verse. A pencil note marking Williams’s ownership has been added to the label.
