Domesday Book. seu Liber censualis Willelmi primi, Regis Angliae in Domo capitulari Westmonasterii asservatus.
London: Nicholls, 1783. First edition. 2 Volumes. Edited by A. Farley. Folio. (46 x 31cm). 382ff, 450pp. Complete. The first printing of the Domesday Book, issued without title pages (as in the original MS). Without the two supplementary volumes of indices & amendations published in 1816, in smaller size (except in large paper), and not often found, nor deemed requisite to the main text. Occasional spotting & a very few minor marginal stains. Early nineteenth-century half-morocco, gilt, cloth sides with some rubbing on the hinges, which remain quite sound. A pleasing & attractive set. Heavy item requiring additional postage for foreign order. [Lowndes 659; Sweet & Maxwell I, 93; Ebert 6329; Bridgman 97; BMC VII, 527; Brunet II, 802]. [Attributes: First Edition]
