[4] pp 192 An early Cromwell biography from the collection of the evangelical President of Magdalene College, Cambridge, Samuel Hey. Quarter calf and vellum corners over marbled boards, lacking the spine label. Bookplate of the parochial 'Vicarage Library, Steeple-Ashton, Wiltshire' to the front pastedown; ownership signature of 'Sam[uel]: Hey 1768', Fellow and President of Magdalene College, Oxford, subsequently vicar of Steeple Ashton, who incorporated his library into the parochial collection. Hey had built an additional room on his vicarage to house his personal library and left around 175 titles 'for the use of vicars in succession', many purchased in 1760s and 1770s like this one while Hey was a Fellow at Magdalene. On the verso of the title page Hey has written 'The Author of this Book is called Heath - in "Memoirs of the Cromwells" by "Mark Noble."' At the tail of the final leaf is an earlier eighteenth century ownership signature: 'William Danbie book'. Slight staining to the frontispiece portrait of Cromwell, otherwise a very good copy with excellent provenance.
