Madame de Villedieu, The Exiles of the Court of Augustus Caesar (1726)


This 1726 English translation of Madame de Villedieu’s Exilez de la Cour d’Auguste has two inscriptions from a female owner named Anna Sourhouse. The second appears on leaf G1r and includes Anna’s middle name, Maria. Madame de Villedieu was a 17th-century writer and her Exilez de la Cour d’Auguste, which first appeared in print in 1673, is not a history but a work of fiction.
