Gibbons, Thomas. An English Version of the Latin Epitaphs in the Nonconformist's Memorial: To which is added a Poem Sacred to the Memory of the Two Thousand Ministers Ejected or Silenced by the Act of Uniformity, August 24, 1662. London. Printed for W. Harris. 1775. 36pp.

The whole quite good in likely mid-20th century quarter leather bindings, some rubbing as shown; very durable and shelf attractive. Interior with some minor handling and a few unobnoxious pencil marks toward the beginning. The separately bound work has slight paper losses at corner of last three leaves, not impacting text. Lacks the plate of "George Hughes," at least appropriately paginated. It could be misbound somewhere. Still wonderful. The volumes often have been long ago plundered and this retains all but one.
