Poet's expenses.- Blackmore (Sir Richard, epic poet & physician, 1654-1729) Autograph signed order to pay to Thomas Williams & Abraham Anselme the sum of twenty five pounds, 1p., repaired tear, foxing, lightly soiled, 85 x 170mm., Strasbourg, May 1684.

⁂ Expenses during a tour of Europe. Blackmore is best known for his Prince Arthur, an Heroick Poem in X Books, 1695, which was a celebration of William III, and showed his support for the Glorious Revolution.
