London: 1694. Original 1st edition English language version of the Edict of Nantes. 2 Volume set, leather bound, gold embossed very rare edition of the first English translation of the Edict of Nantes, printed London 1694 Given and considering these original 1st edition volumes of the Edict of Nantes are now close to 325 years old they are in excellent overall condition and would grace any book collectors collection. Bindings are in good condition. There is some scuffing to the leather on the back cover of Volume 1, see last photo. Please look at photographs they form part of the description. If you have any questions please contact me. The ex libris is of my late step father Derek Riley (1935 - 2013) F.R.S.A, who was famous as a church organ designer and carver. These are from his personal collection. His works grace many famous cathedrals and concert halls the world over (google). According to a leaf note in pencil in Volume I, he purchased these volumes in 1976 from the estate of the Earl of Seafield at Cullen House in Scotland, the ancestral home of the Ogilvie family (family name of the Earl of Seafield ). The name "Ogilvie" is hand written in both copies....see photo 2. Size each volume: approx 23.5 x 19 cm ( 9 1/4 x 7 1/2 inches, including leather cover/binding). Thank you for looking.
