In Memory of JAMES   EDWARDS Esquire of LONDON
Well known to the learned and ingenious of the age in which he lived, as one of the
most eminent Collectors and Booksellers in Europe.
To his skillful research and liberal spirit of enterprise, his Country is indebted for
the rarest specimens, biblical and claſsical of the typographic art. By his zealous
activity in his profeſsion he exhausted the treasures of Foreign Cabinets to enrich the
stores of the Scholar and the Man of taste in his native Land.
He was a most affectionate Husband and Father, a kind, sincere, and useful Friend, and
in all the transactions and relations of life, a man of unblemished integrity.
Happy in a temper always serene and cheerful, his manners were frank, courteous,
and benevolent: His faith in the Gospel was firm.
His piety ardent and uniform. His resignation perfect.
Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace


    He died on Tuesday the 2nd of January Aged 59 in the Year of our Lord 1816
