The imprint is false; in fact printed in 1658 in London for Richard Royston and possibly Henry Seile (see Madan 64:second issue). "A short view of the life and reign" is probably a reissue, with preliminaries cancelled, of Wing H1735B, which was printed for Royston in 1658. The "Eikōn basilikē" was possibly printed by Robert White (see Madan 64:first issue)
"Several speeches delivered by his Majesty" begins separate pagination, with divisional title on ²B1. Within this series, "His Majesties messages for peace", "His Majesties letters, to severall persons", "His Majesties private letters to the Queen, and others", and "The papers which passed betwixt His Majestie and Mr. Alexander Henderson, at Newastle [sic] ." each have separate divisional title; pagination and register are continuous
"Reliquiæ sacræ Carolinæ: . together with severall additions . The second part ." has separate title page, pagination, and register. Variant: title has "additionals". Within this series, "Eikōn basilikē" has separate title page in red and black dated "M. DC. XLVIII." in imitation of the first edition, and with crown and skull ornaments. The work was originally attributed to Charles I, but was probably written by John Gauden, who included some authentic writings of the King. "The papers which passed between His Majesty and Mr. Marshall, Mr. Vines, Mr. Caril, and Mr. Seaman, ." has divisional title; pagination is continuous. "Additionall prayers used by His Majesty in the time of his sufferings and restraint" (caption title) pagination skips to p. 9
