FLEETWOOD 1707 INFORMATION SOUGHT

  Ron Haller-Williams writes: "A friend has a book which
  Clain-Stefanelli does not appear to list.  The author is
  Anonymous, but it has a pencil note which reads "by
  William Fleetwood   /   1st ed.   /   (1707)"  and an
  ex-libris plate of somebody named  F. B. Brook

  Preface + some 180 pages + index.     Title page reads:
  Chronicon Preciosum:  or, an Account of English Money,
  the price of Corn, and Other Commodities,  For the last
  600 Years.  In a Letter to a Student in the University of
  Oxford. LONDON, Printed for Charles Harper, at the
  Flower-de-luce, over-against St. Dunstan's Church, in
  Fleetstreet.   M DCC VII.  Any info on this would be
  greatly appreciated.

  If anybody is interested, the rather lengthy "letter" is a
  discourse on the validity of claiming to comply with a
  College statute established centuries earlier, when
  possessing an inheritance worth 6 per year, and
  wanting to be admitted as a Fellow of the College,
  even though the statute specified an upper limit of 5
  per year."
