We found the following description of Quarles on-line: "Quarles (1593-1644) was chronologer to the City of London and secretary to Archbishop Usher in Ireland. He is best remembered for his poetry, characterized by original imagery, striking sentiment, fertility of expression, and a compression of style. Upon the outbreak of the 1644 rebellion in Ireland, he fled to England and was associated with Charles I, and as a consequence, his books and some manuscripts prepared for the press were plundered."; Steel engraving; 12mo 7" - 7" tall
