GERARD, John. John Gerard: The Autobiography of an Elizabethan.

(London): Longmans, Green and Co., 1951.  First edition.  Octavo.  287 pages.  Translated from the Latin by Philip Carman.  Introduction by Graham Greene.  A contemporary translation of one of the most remarkable documents of the Elizabethan period.  Illustrated with 7 plates.  Crease to the frontispiece which shows John Gerard’s house, in St. Clement’s Lane.’ [when this engraving was published by N. Smith in 1798 it was thought this was the house in which the conspirators met before the Gunpowder Plot, and probably well-founded, as the lease was held by John Gerard and mentioned by the conspirators in their depositions].  A good copy, some foxing, in dusty and marked dust jacket, still a solid copy.
