Henry Clay Folger holding Edward Gwynn's book.

One of Henry Folger's most prized possessions, the book he chose to hold in his portrait by Frank Salisbury that hangs in the Reading Room, is the collection of Shakespeare plays usually referred to as the "Pavier Quartos" and bound in calfskin with "EDWARD GWYNN" stamped on the front cover in gold leaf.

Edward Gwynn's gilt stamp on the front and back covers of Tinto's La nobiltà di Verona (1592).

Edward Gwynn was a member of Furnivall's Inn. He died around 1645, when he wrote his will. He was an extensive book collector; in 1934, William A. Jackson identified (but does not seem to have listed in print) more than 70 books deriving from his library, including a copy of Andrew Maunsell's Catalogue of English Printed Books (STC 17669), indicating his interest in the book trade, although this copy has not yet been traced.[1] His bindings have been discussed in detail by J. Franklin Mowery, former Eric Weinmann Head of Conservation at the Folger, in an unpublished booklet held at the Library (call number Z270.E5 M69 2011). Images of the Folger bindings are available in the Bindings image collection.

The following is a list of known volumes once owned by Edward Gwynn, or once thought to have been owned by him, organized by current location.

  2. A69.9/C77(2) 01. Cooke, Alexander. More vvorke for a Masse-priest. London : printed by William Iones, dwelling in Red-crosse streete, 1621. Bound first in a volume also containing Alexander Cooke, Yet more vvorke for a Masse-priest. London, 1622. Sion College Library Collection. Description of binding: "Sion copy at A69.9/C77(2) 01 bound in 17th century brown tanned calf with a variable width blind triple fillet border on front and back covers; front cover with the gilt tooled name: "Edward Gwynn", with gilt stamped fleurons; rear cover with the gilt tooled initials "E G", i.e. Edward Gwynn (-1645), a lawyer and book collector; decorative gilt rolled board edges in a dot-in-egg design; rebacked, lettered in gilt on leather spine label, blind filleting on spine; plain paper pastedowns; edges stained red."

Unverified. The following item has a note attributing it to Edward Gwynn's collection on the inside of its current housing, but this claim has not yet been substantiated and requires further investigation. Correspondence with Lambeth Palace Library has revealed that this volume may have been among those rebound due to wear or bomb damage in the 1950s. These bindings were not kept, but staff at the time did keep notes on provenance. Current staff stated that such notes included with these volumes have often been proven accurate in the recent past when cross-checked with other sources.
