A reissue with cancel title-page of The Life and Death of that Matchless Mirrour of Magnanimity, and Heroick Vertues Henrietta Maria de Bourbon (London, 1669). Both issues are rare. ESTC locates 7 copies of the 1669 issue and 6 copies of this later issue of 1685. No sale of either is recorded on the on-line databases.
