London Henry Hills for J. Edwin 1679 Folio. (xii),339,(i),16,(8),2,10-11,9-11,14-258,369-391,(i)pp. Early full calf Cambridge-style binding, rebacked in the 19th century with the spine in 7 compartments, intricately gilt; leather label, gilt. Engraved frontispiece. Each work has its own title page, and, for the first three, begins the pagination anew, though 'The Shepherds Calandar' is mispaginated in three places. (2),A-Z4 (Kk mismarked K, Nn mismarked N),Aa-Zz4,Aaa-Zzz4,Aaaa-Iiii4,Kkkk, Aaaaa-Ccccc4. A handsome copy with an inscription dated 1891, probably the date of the reback. Unbeliveably quirky pagination and signature markings, but complete. One of two states of this printing: This state shows two bars with catchword 'Calen-" on page 258, followed by p. 359, 'Calendarium Pastorale'. (A second state lacks the catchword, has 'Finis' between the bars on p. 258, an advertisement leaf, and then the 'Calendarium'.) Carpenter, p. 111. DNB suggests that this edition may have been edited by Dryden. Wing S4965. ESTC R7177. Hardcover
