Other notes:A 1672 edition of this book is on Hooke's list of desiderata on fol. 150r of British Library, MS Sloane 1039. This list can now be linked to the auction of Edward Wray's library, and the book matches lot 534 on p. 43 of William Cooper's Catalogus librorum bibliothecae instructissimae Eduardi Wray de Barling . . . quorum auctio habenda est . . . Junii 20. 1687, available online via EEBO.
It is possible that the 1672 date in Cooper's catalogue is an error since the full title of the book is The present state of Egypt, or, A new relation of a late voyage into that kingdom performed in the years 1672 and 1673.
