    • Editorial Notes

      • [Data provided by the ESTC/BL]
      • [Wing attributes four works to Robert Gardiner: Ars clericalis (1690) The compleat constable (1692) Instructor clericalis (1693) and A method of pleading by rule (1697). Later parts of "Instructor clericalis" appeared in the 18 cent. signed "R.G. A Clerk of the Court of Commonpleas". Other 18 cent. works also signed in this way. However, an undated mourning poem by William Gardiner "In memoriam amici mihi longe charissimi, viri verè eruditi & admodum juxtà generosi Roberti Gardiner, J.C." presumed to be about Robert Gardiner is conjecturally dated 1700 by Wing (Wing G250aA, ESTC R41419). Verify if there were two Robert Gardiners responsible for the works linked to this record. No biographical information found on ODNB or the www 07 June 2019.]
