A crown and a skull

As usual when we are making protective boxes for the books in the collection , we cannot help but be surprised by some of the tooling on the cover!

Here is an example of what was found yesterday: A crown and a skull!

CI. e2

Imago Regis Caroli By Charles I (King of England) was printed in 1649 in Hague (Nederdlands). Our copy in the Derry and Raphoe collection is from Typis SB Impensis J Williams & F Eglesfield Londinensium however I have found a link to a digitised copy online from Ex officina samuelis broun, 1649, which is rather similar.
