About this Item

VERY RARE, an early reissue, date of publication estimated by STC. The first edition was printed by Pynson in 1523. Engraved titlepage with acorn device. 8vo, (136 by 91mm), full blind paneled calf over wooden boards in period style, the spine with raised bands between compartments framed in blind. A4, B-H7, lacking final blank leaf H8 and text leaves G8 and H1. VERY RARE, OCLC SHOWS COPIES AT THE HUNTINGTON, BRITISH LIBRARY AND CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY ONLY. This edition has Berthelet's verses and the prologue, but it does not name Fitzherbert as the author. From The Boke of Surveying and Improvements, may be learned a great deal about the economy of the feudal system at the time of its decline. Whether the judge, Sir Anthony Fitzherbert, or his elder brother John was the author of the two tracts is a debate that has been going on for centuries, but in either case the value of these important sources for English agrarian history remains unaffected. Professor Skeat, in a positive way, championed the claims of Sir Anthony, and was met by the Rev. Reginald Fitzherbert in an article which sets forth at some length the arguments and probabilities in favor of the elder brother. The catalogue of the British Museum apparently inclines to the latter's side, while J. M. Rigg, in the Dictionary of National Biography, warmly espouses the cause of Sir Anthony.
