London: Sam. Buckley, 1713. Early Edition. Wraps. Fine. 8vo. 128pp. Bound in later marbled paper wrappers. Woodcut vignette on the title and another above the colophon, Woodcut chapter heading and initial at the beginning of the Life. St Winifred, or St. Gwenfrewy, Abbess of Trefynnon and of Gwythenn,(d. 600 AD), was honored from early times in Wales as a saint. In 1136 her relics were translated to her shrine at the Benedictine Monastery in Shrewsbury. Two years later, her Life was written in Latin by Robert, Prior of Shrewsbury (d. 1167). Robert's Life was translated by 'J.F.' (probably John Falconer) in 1635, republished in 1712. Bishop William Fleetwood thought the translation so poor that he published this translation the following year, hence the statement 'Second Edition' on the title page. The removal of St. Winifred's relics to Shrewsbury was the basis for the first of the Brother Cadfael tales by Edith Pargeter, 'Morbid Taste for Bones'. Traces of foxing… Read more
