A Treatise of Monarchy
Richard Baldwin, London 1689 - The owners notes and my observation agree with Wing number H3783. This 73 page pamphlet has been placed inside hard red cloth boards, with a gilt lettered black spine label. The boards measure 8'' X 6 1/2'', The text measures 7 3/4'' X 6'' fore-edge to gutter. Collation is primarily quarto. After the restored endsheet (no preliminary sheets appear) is the title page. There is a small penned circled D at the upper right corner. Opposite this in the gutter margin is pencilled "edn., Wing number and placements." Verso title blank, followed by a 2 page TOC. Page 1 through 73 appear next followed by another blank beige replacement endsheet. The text has minimal foxing and two characteristics worth noting. The paper is a bit thinner then customary for the era so the read-thru is more pronounced. Additionally, the top edge is in places 3/8 of an inch to a scant 1/8 of an inch from the top edge of the sheets. Hunton's name does not appear in the text, authorship is given as ''Done by an earnest desirer of his country's peace.'' Printing ''London: printed for, and sold by Richard Baldwin in the old Baily. MDCLXXXIX.'' The grade above maybe thought of as a compromise between the newish boards and the aged text. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
