Edward Eccleston.

THis Author is (I suppose) still living, and has writ a Play set off with Sculptures, and several Titles to make it sell; it was first call’d,

Noah’s Flood; or, The Destruction of the World, an Opera, 4 to. 1679. Dedicated to the Dutchess of Monmouth; the second Title was The Cataplasm, or General Deluge of the World, 4 to. 1684. and again the third time, under the Name of The Deluge, or, The Destruction of the World, 4 to. 1691. The Foundation of it is from Sacred Writ.
