These translations, nearly all of works in French , are numerous — the D.N.B. lists over thirty of them, the British Museum catalogue over thirty, whilst the National Library of Wales has at least twelve. In date they range from 1654 ( Treatise against the Principles of Descartes ) to 1680 ( Blondell's Pindar and Horace compared ) or even later. Letters by him are prefixed to works by his friend John Hall of Durham , poet , whom he first met at Cambridge . He is sometimes credited with the authorship of A History of the Civil Wars of Great Britain and Ireland , 1661 ; he seems to have edited Enchiridion , 1686 , the work of his friend Henry Turberville .
