About this Item

Rebound into clean green buckram, with spine labels having gilt lettering on a dark-red background. The spines and the covers have very good, unworn and unbumped edges, with the covers being well attached. Vol. 1 lacks the half-title and the title page, which are complete in Vol. 2. Vol. 1 has two later frontpapers, followed by the original "Advertisement to the Eighteenth Edition - This Edition of Sir Edward Coke's Commentary upon Littleton is printed from the last edtion by Mr. Butler, with some corrections and insertions in Mr. Hargrave's notes from his own copy". The next page is the "Advertisement - A Seventeenth Edition of this Work being called for etc.". Followed by 8 pages of "Mr. Hargrave's First Address to the Public", followed by the 14 pages of the 1787 "Mr. Butler's Preface to the Thirteenth Edition", follwed by "The Preface", "Analysis of Littleton", "A Table of the Heads", followed by 152 pages of differrent Indexes. The text is not paginated, with the last lines being "The End of the First Volume containing The First And Second Books with the Notes". This book contains a fold-out engraving depicting the forbidden degrees of consanguinity in marriage. Volume 2 contains "Third Book", also without pagination. The pages are very clean, are still crisp, and are tightly bound, with hardly any foxing. The only browning to the pages is from the fold-out engraving. The books measure about 6 inches by 9-1/4 inches (150mm by 231mm) and together are almost 4 inches thick. Bookseller Inventory # 14266
