About This Item

Published by In the Savoy, Printed by T.N. for Henry Herringman at the Blew Anchor in the Lower Walk of the New Exchange, London, 1670. Frontispiece, (16), 208, [28], 67 pages. Two volumes bound in 18th c. calf with royal coat-of-arms stamped center of front board, bordered with triple rules in blind with acorn decorations stamped at corners, edges dyed red. Near Fine, the label perhaps refreshed at a later date, with the bookplate of Gower Earl Gower front paste down and Gower's coat-of-arms printed verso of title page of Steps to the Temple, Lord Gower having obviously had this copy bound to his specifications. TWO VOLUMES bound as one. "Steps to the Temple" and "The Delights of the Muses" are actually the 3rd editions even though stating second edition, while "Carmen Deo Nostro" and "Poemata et Epigrammata, Quae Scripsit Latina & Graeca" are both second editions. John Leveson-Gower, 1st Earl Gower, PC ( 1694 -1754) was an English Tory politician and peer who twice served as Lord Privy Seal from 1742 to 1743 and 1744 to 1754. Leveson-Gower also served in the Parliament of Great Britain, where he sat in the House of Lords as a leading member of the Tories, prior to switching his political affiliation and serving in various Whig-led government ministries until his death in 1754. A quite handsome copy, Crashaw's early editions are uncommon. . Second Edition. Calf. Near Fine. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
