Publication Date: 1713
Hinges are open but held by the cords (front board only held by one cord). There is overall rubbing and wear, but the book makes a lovely antique appearance. Large florid signature of former owner, John Lawrence on front and rear end papers with the date of 1723. Their penmanship with quill pens or the equivalent was spectacular. Frontis. and chapter head and tail decorations. 550 pages plus two pages of The Table. Obviously in the original binding which is full leather with five raised bands on the spine. Title is blind stamped on the spine although it may have once been gilt. Apparently a first edition as Copac shows only this edition in its listing. Bookseller Inventory # 16089
