Gilt name of Edward Gwynn (d. ca. 1645)
One of around eight volumes in St John's that bear the name Edward Gwynn stamped in gilt on the front cover, and the initials E.G. on the back cover. This particular volume is bound in vellum, but others are bound in calf. The volumes appear to have come from various sources, several from Peter Gunning and two from Thomas Baker. According to the Register of Admissions to the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple, Gwynn was the son of Thomas Gwynn of London, was admitted to the Middle Temple on 23 Nov. 1610, and called to the Bar 24 June 1631. Other volumes bearing Gwynn’s name are to be found in the Middle Temple Library.
