Near-contemporary copies of an antiquarian correspondence between Walter Moyle (1672-1721) and John Reynolds, Master of Exeter School and later Canon of Exeter (d. 1758). The copies may be the work of William Barlow, Fellow of St John's College (d. 1753). Moyle's Works were edited by Thomas Sergeant and first published in 1726-7. However, these letters apparently remain unprinted.
The copied letters are as follows:
265x200 mm. x+128+xxx pp. Inside front cover: 'St John's College Library - Given by the revd Mr Barlow formerly fellow of the College'. On the flyleaf the signature W. Barlow and the date 1734.
A single hand, gradually growing smaller. Paper. Bound in contemporary boards, with a later leather spine. Repaired by David Yates of J. P. Gray & Son, Apr. 1973 (inscription inside back cover).
