London: William Sheares, 1637. Second edition, 1637. First published 1610. Early law dictionary in what appears to be the original or contemporary binding. Full brown leather with blind ruled lines to covers and spine, but with title, author and some subtle decorations added in neat handwriting with a gilt pen probably in the 20th century, and what appears to be 18th or early 19th century decorative gilt borders around the far outer edges of the front cover. Unpaginated, 7.75" tall, about 1.75" thick. Pastedown endpapers present but separated with fragments of older printed text in English visible between covers. Some external wear and chipping, binding sound with one gathering slightly loosened, very minor insect damage to the far top inner margins throughout most of the book, some old initials on what is now the exposed verso of the front pastedown along with a large rubber stamped "BOND" in purple, and a more modern name and address stamp in blue on the verso of the title page - which unfortunately bleeds through to the top of the title page, just above and to the right of the title, page age-toned but generally very clean with additional darkening and dampstaining to the title page and preface. The author's name, Cowell, is neatly handwritten on the upper outside corner of the text block.. Hard Cover. Fair. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
