17th-century brown morocco binding for John Williams, Bishop of Lincoln (Q.4.36)

17th-century gold-tooled brown morocco for John Williams, Bishop of Lincoln, and later Archbishop of York, from a presentation copy of Francis Mason's Vindiciae Ecclesiae Anglicanae, siue, De legitimo eiusdem ministerio, id est, de episcoporum successione, consecratione, electione, & confimatione (London, 1625), given to Williams by the editor, Nathaniel Brent. There are several volumes in the Library bearing Williams's arms, usually with relatively plain calf, but this is a particularly finely bound example.
