One more possible stray from Beddome's Library

In a catalogue of 1892 I came across this entry

Annesley (S), Life of the Rev, Thomas Brand contemp. red mor., g.e., (probably by S. Mearne jun) Sides covered with delicate gt. tooling, with drawer-handle stamps, autograph of Benjamin Beddome, the hymn-writer, on title, 1692, 12mo. (251), May 12, Hodgson Myers, £5 Annius (Jo.) Commentaria de Antiquitatibus, lit. rom.

The Puritan Annesley c 1620-1696 was an ancestor of the Wesleys. Brand lived 1635-1691.

This looks to be the same book noted here.
