7 Bacon, Matthew A Treatise on Leases and Terms for Years
London A. Strahan 1798 First Edition Hardcover Fair 
London: A. Strahan, 1798. Very scarce Bacon title. This is not part of Bacon's New Abridgement of the Law, which underwent many printings in the mid 18th and early 19th century, but the first and only edition of a totally separate publication (although the subject matter was indeed included in Bacon's Abridgement). The Advertisement at the front indicates that this book was published separately not out of the greed of the the proprietors (Bacon et al), but to pre-empt a piracy in progress - "Alarmed at such an attempt upon a work in which they were so deeply interested, they endeavoured by remonstrances to prevail with the parties to relinquish their design; but these proving ineffectual, no other means were left them of asserting their claims, then by making a separate Publication of the Tract themselves". Full calf, [iv], 251p., [i], p.245-352, rear endpaper absent. Externally quite worn, with covers detached, spine about gone. Text block firm with no loosened pages other than the first few, which are detached. Pages have almost no foxing other than the title page, no chips, tears, markings. Internally very clean.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fair. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.
