Binding stamp of Sir Augustine Pettus (fl. 1613)

Gold-stamped arms of Sir Augustine Pettus, who was knighted in 1611, and gained his B.A. from Cambridge in 1613, from an edition of Matthieu's Histoire de France (1605). The arms here appear on a gold-tooled vellum binding, with the initials A.P., but a copy of Mathieu's Louys XI (1610), although similarly bound, lacks these initials. Both books were given Thomas Baker.
