Lexicon Juris Civilis, Ex Variis Probatorum Authorum Commentariis Congestum
Lugdani [i.e. Lyon]: Apud Sebtastianum Gryphium, 1541. [3], cols. 14-740, [3ff]. Signatures: a-z8, A-H8. Contemporary blind-ruled sheep, with some wear and loss to surfaces. Slight loss and splitting to joints at base of spine. Dampstaining, some soiling and occasional worming to text - mostly marginal, but causing loss to the odd letter. Adam Bothwell, Bishop of Orkney's copy, with his ink inscription 'Adamus Episcopi orchadey' to title page. Later in the library of the Grahams, inscribed as such to title, with the eighteenth-century shelfmark of B.29, and with the nineteenth-century armorial bookplate of Robert Graham to FEP. Undoubtedly the copy of Adam, Bishop of Orkney (1529-1583), Reformed clergyman and civil servant who married Mary Queen of Scots to James Hepburn according to the reformed rite on 15th May 1567, and, following the former's abdication, anointed her son James as King of Scotland just two over two months later on 29th July. It bears his distinctive ink inscription to title and is entirely in keeping with the wide ranging judicial portion of his library, this most successful work of Alsatian humanist and jurist Jakob Speigel (1483-1547) is nevertheless not included in the inventory of his books contained within The Warrender Papers (London, 1932. Vol II). Not in Adams.. First Edition. Folio.
