        Asia / Oder: Ausführliche Beschreibung Des Reichs des Grossen Mogols Und eines grossen Theils von Indien Nebst einer vollkomenen Vorstellung des Königreichs Persien/ Wie auch Georgien/ Mengrelien / Kirkassien und anderer benachbarter Länder. 2 Teile in einem Band.

      - Quart. Mit gestochenem Titel, 38 Kupfertafeln (davon 11 doppelblattgroß), 4 doppelblattgroßen gestochenen Karten und 11 Textkupfern. 3 nicht nummerierte Blatt (von 4 ?), 300 S., 2 nicht nummerierte Blatt; Zwischentitel (Beschreibung des Königreichs Persien), 170 S., 2 nicht nummerierte Blatt (von 3 ?). Pergamentband der Zeit mit altem handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Erste deutsche Ausgabe dieser prächtig illustrierten Beschreibung großer Teile des indischen Subkontinents, von verschiedenen Gebieten des heutigen Pakistans und Afghanistans sowie von Persien und Teilen des Kaukasus. - Tiele 299; vgl. Ebert 5757; vgl. Grieb-Luber 320, Dinse 420 und Lipperheide LA5, I 332 (jeweils nur die niederländische Ausgabe). –Vorliegendes Werk vermittelt ein erstaunliches Bild über das landeskundliche, geographische und historische Wissen jener Zeit, das über die oben aufgeführten Länder bestand. Im Mittelpunkt des ersten Teils steht das Mogulreich, eines von Beginn des sechzehnten bis Mitte des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts bestehenden Staates, dessen Kerngebiet in der nordindischen Indus-Ganges-Ebene lag und im siebzehnten Jahrhundert - zur Zeit seiner größten Ausdehnung - fast den gesamten indischen Subkontinent sowie Teile Afghanistans umfaßte. Neben einer vorzüglichen Karte dieses Reiches zu Beginn des Werkes, zeigen die Kupfertafeln neben religiösen Riten und Stadtansichten (Bharuck, Amadabath, Visiapour, Dabul) eine Darstellung vom "Hof oder Thron des großen Mogols", die die ganze Pracht des höfischen Lebens ahnen läßt. Interessant ist die bildnerische Wiedergabe historischer Persönlichkeiten in ihren Trachten und Kostümen und inmitten Ihres Umfeldes. Die Darstellungen von Transportmöglichkeiten, von Bauten und Zelten sowie von Waffen, Tieren, Pflanzen und Alltagsgegenständen machen den besonderen Reiz dieser Beschreibung aus. Interessant ist auch eine Stadtansicht Surattas mit dem Hafen und den davor kreuzenden Handelsschiffen (gemeint ist die Stadt Surat am Golf von Kambhat). Hier etablierte sich seit dem 16. Jahrhundert einer der wichtigsten Umschlagsplätze für Handelswaren und Güter aus Indien. Bis 1687 hatte die East India Company ihren Hauptsitz in Surat. Teil 2 beschreibt Persien und Teile des Kaukasus. Hier stehen die doppelblattgroßen Stadtansichten mit ihren herrlichen und aussagekräftigen Staffagen im Vordergrund. Gezeigt werden unter anderem die Städte Kom, Soltania, Kaschan oder Ardabil. Letztere wird aus einer "schrägen" Vogelperspektive gezeigt: "Weltliche Gebäude" und die "Vornehmsten Gassen" werden duch Buchstaben und Zahlen gekennzeichnet und in Legenden erklärt. Die dekorative Seekarte zeigt das Kaspische Meer; eine Landkarte zeigt Persien, eine weitere das östliche Ufer des Schwarzen Meeres bis zum Kaukasus. – Die biographischen Angaben zu Olfert Dappers Leben sind lückenhaft. Um 1635 geboren, schrieb er, der die Niederlande wahrscheinlich nie verlassen hat, mehrere landeskundlich-geographische Werke, so über Afrika, China, Arabien oder wie vorliegend: über das große Mogulreich und Persien. Bekannt von ihm ist ebenfalls eine 1663 veröffentlichte Beschreibung Amsterdams und eine Übersetzung der Werke des Herodot ins Niederländische. Er starb im Jahr 1689. Der Reiz seiner Werke besteht nun darin, daß er die umfangreiche Literatur der Länder, die er behandelt, nicht nur auswertet, sondern über eine bloße Kompilation hinaus eine interessante Synthese der von ihm genutzten, teils sehr seltenen Quellen schafft. – Manchen Exemplaren ist bei Teil I neben dem gestochenen Titel und dem Titelblatt ein Vortitel beigebunden; bei Teil II weisen manche Exemplare am Schluß einen Tafelanzeiger auf. - Teils stärker fleckig (vereinzelt farbig); mit kreisrunden Abdrücken; Ecken bestoßen. Angeklebte Spiegel teilweise aufgeplatzt; vorderer Spiegel mit Resten einer Montierung und Exlibris einer berühmten Sammlung (Sammlerstempel auch verso Haupttitel und am Ende von Teil 2); Kupfertitel mit kleinerem Randausriß; vereinzelt kleinere Einrisse (be [Attributes: First Edition]

        Peregrinacion que ha hecho de la mayor parte del Mundo

      1687 - First complete edition of the First Circumnavigation Eastwards. 1687-8. Zaragoza & Valencia. Pasqual Bueno. In 4to (197 mm x 140 mm). 1 [blank] + 8 ff. + 288 + 4 ff. + 175 + 1 [blank]. Contemporary polished calf, spine gilt with lion in each compartment surrounded by stars, red morocco lettering-piece; joints cracking. A fine copy generally, with only light browning; wide margins. First complete edition, and first edition of the second part. Cubero’s was the first circumnavigation performed eastwards, first making his way from Europe to Asia, then America –through Mexico and Cuba- and finally back to Europe. Cubero (ca. 1645 - ca. 1697) was a Spanish Priest and missionary, he studied humanities, philosophy and theology; in 1671 the Congregation of Propagande Fide sent him as an Apostolic Preacher to Asia and the East Indies, mission during which he would travel largely across Russia (Moscow), Turkey (Istanbul), Armenia, Persia, etc., making his way to Goa and Madras. In Malacca he would be detained by the Dutch for a short period of time, after which he journeyed once more, this time towards the Philippines, then making the famous route between Manila and Mexico. He set sail across the Caribbean –visiting Cuba- and reached Spain in 1680. “Towards the end of the volume, Cubero describes his experiences of the New World” (Sabin). Cubero made most of his route by land, thus being constantly in touch with the costumes, religions and ceremonies of the people he visited, describing them in considerable detail. The second part of this work “largely concerns his adventures with the army in Europe, as well as describing the battle of Arsan and other notable events. Named Apostolic Confessor to the army of the Holy Roman Emperor, he served the Emperor against Turcs in Ungria, and was present at the blockade of Buda” (Howgego). Provenance: seller´s ticket on back pastedown, “Luis Bardon Librero Anticuario”. Palau, 65758 & 65759. Sabin, 17821. Howgego, c225. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A will written in Dutch, signed and witnessed in 1689, assigning property in New York to an heir

      New York, June 1, 1687. 8.25" X 12.5". "Manuscript Document Signed: ""Hendrick Jacobs"", and witnessed by William Bogardus and Paul Richard. Will dated June 1, 1687, New York, in Dutch, 4.5 pages recto and verso, 8.25"" X 12.5"" conjoined leaves. Generally very good condition with some tape repair to folds, remnants of wax seals and seal holes, age toning, edge wear and ink burn, which do not materially detract from this darkly penned document. The will is assigning half his property to his son, Jacob, and naming his wife, Annetje, executrix. Witness William Bogardus was most likely the son of Anneke Jans, who with her first husband, Roeloff Jansen, obtained a grant of 62 acres of land on Manhattan island, extending from the present Warren Street to the neighborhood of Desbrosses Street, lying between Broadway and the Hudson River. When her first husband died, she married inherited the property and remarried Everardus Bogardus in 1638. When she died, she left her property to be divided among her eight surviving children. The 62 acres of land which Anneke inherited acquired the name ?Domine?s Bouwerie?. Combined in English days with the ""Company?s Bouwerie? and granted to Trinity Church in 1705 by the Colonial Governor, Lord Combury, as a representative of Queen Anne of England, this questionable conveyance of ownership of the original property of Anneke Jans became the basis for repeated and hotly contested lawsuits initiated by her descendants to claim their apparent legitimate part-ownership. As recently as the 1920?s, when the property was then considered to be worth ?billions?, some descendants were still attempting to obtain a favorable settlement from the courts, having been denied restitution in preceding generations. Nationwide ?Anneke Jans Bogardus Heirs Association? chapters were established to help finance the legal costs involved, and questionable lawyers obtained millions of dollars from gullible, presumed descendants, on the basis of undocumented or dubious genealogical evidence. Of course, none of the lawsuits were ever settled in favor of the descendant ?heirs?. In reviewing the facts again today, however, one could conclude that the heirs of Anneke Jans were treated unfairly, but it is also plainly clear that no such lawsuit should ever be initiated again because of the finality of the court judgments that were previously rendered."

        Epistolae quotquot reperiri potuerunt; in quibus praeter hactenus editas, plurimae theologici, iuridici, philologici, historici, & politici argumenti occurrunt

      Amstelodami [Amsterdam]: Ex typographia P. & I. Blaeu ... apud Wolfgang, Waasberge, Boom, à Someren & Goethals Folio (37.5 cm, 14.76"). [4] ff., 977, [2] pp.. 1687 First complete edition of Grotius's correspondence, comprising 2,510 letters written by the Dutch philosopher between April 1599 and July 1645 to an international milieu of famous correspondents, including the Swedish statesman Axel Oxenstierna, the Dutch theologian Gerardus Joannes Vossius, and the German politician Ludwig Camerarius — not to mention Queen Cristina. According to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (online), "Hugo Grotius (1583?-1645) [Hugo, Huigh or Hugeianus de Groot] was a towering figure in philosophy, political theory, law and associated fields during the seventeenth century and for hundreds of years afterwards. His work ranged over a wide array of topics, though he is best known to philosophers today for his contributions to the natural law theories of normativity which emerged in the later medieval and early modern periods." The text is printed in Latin, double-column, with a handful of large woodcut initials, a few tail ornaments, and one letterpress diagram. The title-page, printed in red and black, features Blaeu's large device of an astrolabe flanked by Time and Hercules. An index on the final two pages lists Grotius's correspondents and the corresponding letters, which are arranged chronologically in the text. Contemporary northern-European style vellum over boards ruled in blind, panels with blind-stamped central cartouches, spine with seven raised bands and remnants of later paper labels, red speckled edges; vellum soiled and lightly rubbed at extremities with corners bumped. Ex-library with bookplate on front pastedown and later library marking in pen on second leaf; light foxing, a light waterstain across the lower outer corner of perhaps a dozen leaves, and scattered darker stains, with a few leaves browned; small tear in outer margin of title-leaf and another margin, small hole from natural flaw in outer margin of one leaf and small bit of paper torn away from lower corner of another. Very mild worming in middle of two leaves and final leaf, the latter repaired; additional very minor, "slim" worming mostly to margins at rear. => A solid, handsome important book.

This the first collected edition of Columbus' poetry was published by his pupil Jacob Reenstierna. The music was composed by G. von Düben. Georg Stiernhielm (1598-1672) has been called "the father of Swedish poetry". Samuel Columbus (1642-79) was a friend and pupil of Stiernhelm's and one of the more important Swedish 17th-century poets. He died at age 37 following a longer journey through Germany, Holland, England and France, where he became acquainted with contemporary French literature and began translations of Corneille and Molière, among other things.

        A discourse shewing (i.e. showing) that Protestants are on the safer side, notwithstanding the uncharitable judgment of their adversaries; and that their religion is the surest way to Heaven

      London: R. Chiswell, 1687. FIRST EDITION. IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. Small 4to. A-E4 F2, COMPLETE. Neat modern boards First Edition, a scarce Anti-Catholic pamphlet which answers the question "whether it be their relation to ROME or their relation to CHRIST, that men are saved by." Ours is apparently the only copy on the market. Luke de Beaulieu was "one of the first writers to analyze Protestant and Catholic sources" (Francisco Bethencourt). A copy of Beaulieu's works is preserved in Charles & Sarah Wesley's library (now at the University of Manchester) and is inscribed "Sr. Wesley" (see Randy L. Maddox, "Collection of Books owned by the Charles Wesley Family, Methodist Archives, John Rylands Library, in: Wesleyan Theological Journal 38.2 [2003]: 175-216). John Wesley differentiated between essential beliefs and nonessential beliefs which he called "opinions." He believed that Christians should be unified in love but need not have identical beliefs or practice identical rituals. In his sermon on "Catholic Spirit" he said: "But although a difference in opinions or modes of worship may prevent an entire external union, yet need it prevent our union in affection? Though we cannot think alike, may we not love alike? May we not be of one heart, though we are not of one opinion? Without all doubt, we may. Herein all the children of God may unite, notwithstanding these smaller differences. These remaining as they are, they may forward one another in love and in good works." Wesley, though he had his own personal lapses in this area, opposed religious bigotry and did not allow it in Methodist societies. "Luke de Beaulieu (1644/5-1723), Church of England clergyman and religious writer, was a native of France, and was educated at the University of Saumur. Obliged to leave his country on account of his religion he sought refuge in England about 1667 and was naturalized English in June 1682. He rapidly gained a reputation as a cleric, and in November 1670 he received the vicarage of Upton-cum-Chalvey, Buckinghamshire, which he kept until 1681. About 1670 he was also elected divinity reader in the chapel of St George at Windsor. In 1683 he was appointed chaplain to the infamous Judge George Jeffreys, an office which he continued to hold until the revolution of 1688 brought his patron's career to a close. Meanwhile he had become a student at Oxford in 1680; he took the degree of BD on 7 July 1685 at Christ Church, and in October 1686 he was presented by Jeffreys to the rectory of Whitchurch, near Reading. He was made prebendary of St Paul's on 17 January 1687 and, on the following 21 May, prebendary of Gloucester, promotions which he again owed to Jeffreys, now lord chancellor. Beaulieu published various pieces against Roman Catholicism as well as some sermons on public occasions. His principal work was a manual of devotion, Claustrum animae, the Reformed Monastery, or, The Love of Jesus (1677), which was reprinted in 1678 and again in 1865. It is dedicated in gratitude to Dr John Fell, bishop of Oxford and dean of Christ Church, to whom Beaulieu later became chaplain." (SOURCE: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography).

        Journal du voyage du chevalier Chardin en Perse et aux Indes orientales, par la mer Noire et par la Colchide qui contient le voyage de Paris à Hispahan.

      Lyon, Thomas Amaulry, 1687. - 8vo. 2 vols. (24), 438 pp. 439, (9) pp. With engr. portrait frontispiece, additional engr. title, folding engra. map and 15 engr. plates (12 folding). Contemp. French full calf with giltstamped spines. Edges sprinkled in red. Second French edition of Chardin's account of his travels in Persia and India. Includes extracts from the Qur'an (sura 26) as well as Muslim religious songs extolling the greatness of Prophet and the city of Mecca. The French traveller Jean Chardin (1643-1713) had spent the years 1665-70 and 1671-77 in the Middle East and is considered the most knowledgeable westerner of his period with regard to Persian geography and customs (cf. Henze). "He apparently knew Esfahan better than Paris and visited nearly every part of the country. His account of the Persian court and his business transactions with the shah are of considerable interest" (Howgego). "The son of a jeweller, Chardin first went to the Levant in 1665 in order to purchase gems. He made a second journey there in 1671, spending much time in the company of the artist Guillaume Grelot, whom he met in Constantinople and whose drawings inspired the engravings in the present work. Chardin's acute observations and valuable insights into oriental life were highly praised by Montesquieu, Rousseau, Gibbon and Helvetius, all of whom drew on his work in their own writings" (Atabey 218). Persecuted as a Protestant, Chardin settled in London in 1681 and was appointed jeweller to the Royal Court. His journal, originally written in French, was first published in an English translation (London, 1686); the same year, the first French edition appeared in Amsterdam - translated back from the English (cf. Howgego). As Chardin did not consider himself qualified to remark on India, the early editions do not include an account of this part of his journey (though it was ultimately published in 1711). - Some browning; spine-ends chipped; a few tears to individual plates professionally repaired. Altogether a good copy. Rare; OCLC cites a single copy (in the BnF), while Quebec appears to possess a four-volume 12mo variant, and a separate first volume is in the Newberry Library. OCLC 457498604. Cf. Howgego I, 216f. Henze I, 557f. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Neu vollkommen Kräuter-Buch, Darinnen uber 3000. Kräuter, mit schönen und kunstlichen Figuren, auch deren Underscheid und Würckung, samt ihren Namen in mancherley Sprachen, beschrieben. 3 Teile in 1 Band.

      Basel, König und Brandmüller, 1687.. (38 x 24 cm). (10) 663 S.; 2 Bll., SS. 665-1529, 49(1w) Bll. Mit gestochenem Titel und 2472 Textholzschnitten. Blindgeprägter Schweinslederband der Zeit über Holzdeckel mit 2 Schließen.. Fünfte Ausgabe, zweite in Basel gedruckte, hier in einem vollständigen Exemplar mit dem letzten weißen Blatt. - Hauptwerk des berühmten Botanikers und Arztes und eines der umfangreichsten Kräuterbücher seiner Zeit. Jakob Theodor von Bergzabern, bekannt geworden durch die latinisierte Form seines Heimatortes Tabernaemontanus, war Schüler von Hieronymus Bock und von Brunsfeld; später übernahm er die Apotheke in Weißenburg und wurde schließlich Leibarzt des Kurfürsten und Bischofs von Speyer. Als Arzt wendet er sich entschieden gegen den Gebrauch zusammengesetzter Arzneimittel und tritt für die Anwendung einfacher pflanzlicher Medikamente ein. In seinem reich illustrierten Kräuterbuch ordnet Tabernaemontanus die Pflanzen bereits nach Spezies und beschreibt deren Standort und Blütezeit. Einen breiten Raum nimmt die Beschreibung des medizinischen Nutzens der Pflanzen ein, unterschieden nach innerem und äußerem Gebrauch. Anfangs verlegerisch nicht sehr erfolgreich, setzt die große Verbreitung des Werkes erst mit der Bearbeitung durch den berühmten Botaniker Kaspar Bauhin ein. Es ist das in der Schweiz am meisten geschätzte und gebrauchte Kräuterbuch. - Durchgehend etwas gebräunt und stockfleckig, stellenweise mit Feuchtigkeitsspuren im Rand. Einband etwas fleckig, berieben und bestoßen. Stellenweise mit kleinen Restaurierungen. Eine Schließe erneuert. Insgesamt jedoch, besonders für ein derartiges Gebrauchsbuch, gut erhalten. - Hirsch/H. V, 502; Nissen BBI 1931; Heilmann 297; Pritzel 9093.

        Voncken der Liefde Jesu, Van het Godtbegerende Zielenvier

      Amsterdam: 1687. 8vo (173 x 110 mm). [16], 224 [8] pp. Engraved additional title, 50 nearly full-page etched illustrations in the text. Washed & pressed with slight residual discoloration, but the etchings in clear impressions. Late 19th-century red morocco, sides gilt panelled, spine gold-tooled in compartments, turn-ins gilt, gilt edges, by Brany (a few small scratches and a stain to covers). Provenance: Robert Hoe, bookplate; Allan Heywood Bright, bookplate.***first edition, the Hoe copy, of a jolly devotional emblem book by the prolific Dutch poet-artist Jan Luyken, most of whose copious oeuvre is to be found within the covers of books. All 50 etchings of his "Sparks of the Love of Jesus" feature a winning and sometimes rather goofy female figure, representing each of us, or the soul. Each scene illustrates a Biblical passage, bears a Dutch title, and is followed by a poem introduced by a related Biblical quotation. Rather than emblems proper the illustrations are allegorical depictions of biblical scenes correlated with spiritual states of mind. Thus Miss Everywoman observes haplessly as a house is about to collapse on its owners, who have built it upon sand, while Death, a skeleton, leans stubbornly against one wall (Matthew 7.26); or she blows out a candle, fat-cheeked, at her solitary nighttime table (caption, "where there is life there is hope"); or walks barefoot in a field, cows grazing behind, staring down, her arms apart, suddenly noticing the flowers at her feet (Luke 12.27, "Consider the lilies how they grow, they toil not..."); or stands aghast before a feather- and jewel-bedecked courtesan surrounded by leering jesters and devils flying above while Death prepares to seize the lady from behind (James 4.4, "Ye adulterers, and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?..."). Our heroine gazes at the sea (Song of Solomon 8.7, "Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it..."), or at the setting sun, or waves to the evening star. These delightful etchings maintain, beyond their assigned meanings, a universal symbolism. Luyken, who "favored etching and rarely picked up the engraving needle [used here in night scenes and for shading] ... was both the most fertile and one of the most versatile engravers of the Dutch school, and ranked in importance with Romeyn de Hooghe and Gerard de Lairesse as a representative of Dutch engraving in the period after Rembrandt" ?" Thieme-Becker (cataloguer?s translation), who judged Luyken?s best illustrations to be those for his own devotional works, citing this title and two others. The book was deservedly popular and was frequently reprinted. A very good copy albeit in 19th-century condition, in a rare binding signed by the Parisian binder Brany, who sometimes employed Marius Michel as finisher.Landwehr, Emblem and fable books printed in the Low Countries, 3rd edition (1988) 485.

        Onnayo kinmo zui [or: Joyo kimmo zui] [trans.: Illustrated Encyclopedia for Women]

      128 fine full-page woodcuts. Five vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers (rubbed, minor worming in Vol. III very carefully repaired), orig. block printed title label on each upper cover (rubbed), new stitching. Tokyo: 1687. First edition of this handsomely illustrated book; the woodcuts are by Hanbei Yoshida (active 1678-1705), one of the pioneers of the Ukiyo-e school. Hanbei was the leading illustrator in Kyoto and Osaka of his period and worked mostly, if not exclusively, as a book illustrator. He was the first Ukiyo-e illustrator of the region to sign his books. The present work is one of his most famous and successful publications. "With the growth of the chonin class and the aspirations of the new bourgeoisie to a fuller life style, the seventeenth century saw the production of encyclopaedias of behaviour and etiquette, and invariably such compendiums were replete with illustration, detailing correct usage from laying a table to tying a sash. Hambei was the illustrator of one such book, the Joyo Kimmo Zui, 'Illustrated Encyclopaedia for Women,' published in five volumes in 1687. In its comprehensive treatment of dress, hair-styles, household management and the like, it is typical of its class, and the majority of the woodcuts are of almost diagrammatic simplicity, but it is notable for a few full-length figures of women displaying kimono and these lift it from the general ruck of books of the period, the fine patterning within graceful silhouettes."-Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, I, pp. 108-09. The woodcuts of the kimono are most striking and attractive, showing how they are worn as well as the enormous range of patterns according to season. Also illustrated are various implements for women's use in everyday life, including furniture and cosmetic utensils, hair styles, obi, and methods of folding paper to wrap incense. There was an incomplete copy in the Hyde collection (sale Christie's New York, 7 October 1988, lot 110). .

      Ric Chiswell at the Rose and Crown, London, 1687, Full-Leather, Book Condition: Fair-, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 2nd EditionSize: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall, A difficult book to describe. To begin we will give the information from the previous owners notes. The initial date is his purchase. "1949 RR560 (England) Charles I. Basilike. The Works of King Charles The Martyr. Papers Concerning The Differences Betwixt His Said Majesty & His Two houses Of Parliament. With The History of His Life; & Also of His Tryal & Martyredome 2nd. ed.

Calf checked- perhaps from heat, but doesn't look scorched. Later end paps. 100.00."PLEASE NOTE: while shooting the book for it's listing 2 sections of the old spine dislodged about 3" down from title, they will be kept with the book, see foto to come.I will try to add to the prior owner's description and finally give an informal summary of the books sectioning, and pagination. The repairs to the front board corners look very rustic when seen from pastedown side, looking better with age appropriate roughness from outside. I wonder if the book might have a hint of old smoke smell.. The text has notable texture, waviness, moisture stains, but, the foxing seems at bay, given books age. Since acquiring the book, it has been and will be stored in glassine bag, acid free. Foto should follow shortly. While the previous owners description was fair I think he may have been too kind, it might be best to think it a bit rougher that his description implies. Glad to email fotos of the internals. Xlibris plate first pastedown. Light pencil notes at top of first end sheet, ditto verso of 2nd printed page (this is the first title page and follows the Royal Crest page) this note says, "this edition was printed by order of James II." 2nd title page follows and has centuries old penned note at upper corner, dated but I can not make it out. Chiswell and date in roman numerals (1687) given here. These pages are followed by 7 pages, these being the verso of 2nd title page and 3 leaves, of contents for both sections. Text begins following, page 1 thru page 720 after which are 4 leaves, 8 pages of printing history and notes, among them one by Samuel Keble, dated 1693 and another by William Levet, dated 1691. The 3 gatefolds are in place and but for waviness look splendid to my eyes. Book measures 14 1/2 X 9 3/4".Gently leafing thru each page confirmed that all text is present. Please note pages 273 to 282 and 287 and 288 have been corrected from a first digit of '3' to the correct number '2.' The following was noted, pg. 127 has small diagonal section missing (about postage stamp size) at upper corner, ditto but smaller for page 211. Additionally there is some, long ago corrected, dogearing and the occasional dark fleck of foxing, all text seemed legible to my eye. Standard domestic shipping, beyond our basic fee, and any confirmation/insurance will be paid by seller. All items are shipped with appropriate heavy padding and boxing as necessary. The previous owners notes and my copy of the Wing listing (C2076) will accompany the book, Book
