'Contemplations and reflexions upon the Psalmes of David, applying those devotions to the troubles of this time. By Edward Earle of Clarendon', with a dedication and preface. These (MSS. Clarendon 135*, 135**, 135***) were begun in about 1647 and laid aside in 1651 when he had reached the 70th Psalm. In 1668 the work was resumed and finished by 18/28 Feb. 1670/1, the date of the dedication. It was printed in 1727. The present volumes, which divide after the 56th and 109th Psalms, are a careful contemporary copy, bound in red leather with gold tooling and on every cover the arms of the author, combining Hyde, Langford and Aylesbury, surmounted by a coronet.
