Leipzig, Printed Johann Eric Hahn for Jo. Fritsch & Jo. Fr. Gleditsch 1682 Engraved frontispiece includs the portrait of author in allegorical frontispiece by Johann Jacob de Sandrart + figures in the text + many foliated initial capitals & head- & tailpi. Folio vellum with black leather gilt spine label (tips rubbed) fine armorial bookplate with motto Tuum Est. Engraved f rontis + printed title +28pp prelims +1032pp + doublepage genealogical table. The titlepage in black only and title without the additional "cum commentariis absolutissimis et instructissimis indicibus nunc primu`m editum" on the titlepage. This edition thus without the index which seems to go with the red & black titlepage. Precedence unknown but usually the index is the last item typeset as the book has to be printed to allow page numbering so probably the those without index are the earlier state. Some inscriptions in Greek, most in Latin many now lost or indecipherable. A very clean, crisp copy of this indispensable and monumental work.

London, Joshua Kirton 4th edition corrected & enlarged 1653] . Small octavo newer spine with marbled boards (tips rubbed) [18]pp +418ppp +[32]pp A4 bound before A3 and its conjoint A5 bound before A6 in the preliminaries. The titlepage is mounted with loss to margins and the date has the middle two numbers unreadable as there is a small hole. However the edition statement -3rd edition dates it as 1653 with the 3 clearly present on our titlepage. Kirton seems to have published only the 3rd 1653 and 4th 1664, with only the 1653 edition mis-spelling Genealogy. The verso of the title seems to have had some old ink scribbles which partly show through but now that the page is mounted are not legible. This mounting page has a Westminster library reserve stock stamp & numbers with miniature library stamps to p105 & final page of index. Four pages with old marginal pen trials/notes, and 2-3 ink spots and a handsome fancy name Nm. Randall to foot of page 228. The laid paper is watermarked, possibly crown. A few pages are a bit cropped but no text affected tho'page numbers or marginal notes are touched in a few places. *Each of the heroes, Argonauts or gods is shortly described, followed by a much longer history of their deeds by "the Interpreter" (Ross) with the various guises or adventures according to the references of the books and authors in whose works they appeared. Thus for example Midas is shown by the side notes to figure in Ovid's Metamorphoses and other works with quotations given in Greek or Latin. Finally a Christian moral is sometimes added.

London, Ex Officina J[ohn] R[edmayne]. 1668 (colophon 1670) Copperplate frontispiece of Ignoramus. . 134x78mm near contemporary cald gilt ruled with red spine label gilt (rubbed and faded, tips edges worn, boards coming loose but lightly attached). Marbled endpapers, [24]pp (frontis, titlepage, Dramatis Personae, dedications, Prologus Prior 8 March 1614, Posterior 6 May 1615) +154pp inc. Epilogus +[3]pp blank. Neat red ink inscription on FEP R.H.B. Bolton [Trinity College Cambridge] 1883. Light stain of former damp (30x8mm) in top margin of 1st 12 leaves, text otherwise fairly clean throughout but pp 1-20 closely cropped. *Partly based on Giambattista Porta's La Trappolaria from Plautus' comedy Pseudolus. Ruggle, a tutor at Clare College Cambridge, satirised the quarrel of precedence between the Mayor of the town and the Chancellor of the University, using facetious Law-Latin. First performed in 1614 for King James I's visit to Cambridge, the King so enjoyed it that he came to a second one on May 6th 1615a few months later. But lawyers in London didn't appreciate the satire and wrote refutations of what they considered calumnies. When Ruggles died in 1622 he left instructions to burn his papers, but several MS versions were circulating, so in 1630 the play was first published, with many mistakes. It was reprinted more correctly in the 2nd (STC 21446), then this 4th came out in 1659 shortly before Restoration of the Monarchy, and reprinted as here in 1668-70 (printer's full name from Wing R2215).

London, Vol I J. and J. Knapton & 9 others, Vols II-IV J. Darby & 8 others. 1731, 1726, 1727, 1727 Copperplate portraits of the monarchs (19) by VanderGucht. . Four volumes worn half calf with 2 of 4 spine labels (3 covers detached/wear to corners and hinges). Vol I xvi +400 +[36]pp index (Henry I to accession of Richard II); Vol II 427 +[28]pp index (Richard II to Edward IV); Vol III 420 +40pp index (Edward V to Queen Mary); Vol IV 542 +34pp index + 22pp separate index to the Appendix (Elizabeth to death of James I plus a long Appendix pp322-542). Gathering 7R is a single leaf but page number & catchword are correct. In Vol IV the final gathering of the Appendix is in 3 with THE END so there is a blank missing, the index starts a new gathering. The Portrait of Queen Elizabeth at the beginning of Vol I should probably be at the start of the last volume. *These volumes contain primary sources for the history of England and have printed marginal dates & notes as well as explanatory footnotes. They all come from the Advocates Library with engraved label to pastedown, neat oval stamp and donor's inscription "Caroli Winchester 1859" to fly leaf & a single oval stamp to blank verso of each titlepage. Some sporadic foxing to a few gatherings but else all clean, crisp and tight inside.
