Abstract

In 2009, Special Collections accepted the transfer of over 200 pre-1800 printed books from Waikato University, Hamilton. The books received were particularly strong in 18th century literature, religion (especially religious controversies), science (especially optics) and philosophy. Notorious Frauds of the Romish Priests and Jesuits (1692) is but one title received. This ‘rant’ was anonymously penned by politician Sir William Waller (1639-1699), a reprint of his earlier Tragedy of Jetzer (1680). Waller was himself a ‘notorious’ anti-Catholic. This 4th edition copy is of particular interest. It was once owned by a 17th century female reader – ‘Jane Gray, 1695’ – and there are only two surviving copies: one at Otago; the other at the British Library.
