Description:
Watisfield, 11 December 1750. 4 x 6½ inches, laid down, some staining. Thomas Harmer (1714-1788), Independent minister and church historian. Harmer’s reputation as a scholar and useful writer rested originally upon his Observations on Divers Passages of Scripture, Illustrated by Accounts of Travellers in the East, which was published initially in a single volume in 1764, but by 1787 had been extended to four volumes. A fourth edition, edited and revised by Dr Adam Clarke, appeared in 1808. However, Harmer is probably better remembered for his histories of the dissenting churches of East Anglia. Harmer remained minister at Wattisfield for fifty-four years, during which time he missed only one Sunday service through illness. [DNB]

Description:
9 July 1707. 1 page 12 x 7½ inches, folds, minor marginal tears, in clean condition, Moore’s personal seal in red wax affixed. John Moore (1646–1714) was an English cleric, scholar, and book collector. He was Bishop of Norwich (1691–1707) and Bishop of Ely (1707–1714). At the time of his death in 1714, Moore's collection of books and papers contained over 30,000 items, and may have been the largest in England. To celebrate his coronation, King George I caused it to be purchased intact, at a cost of 6,000 guineas, and donated to Cambridge University. Moore's library alone contained nearly twice the material in the existing University library. While some material has been removed over the years, the gift is still largely intact, and is called The Royal Library in honour of its patron.
