About this Item

No publisher or printer given. 1618 but actually 1680 (see ESTC). Full leather. A3, I-XXII, (12), 491, (5) pp. Collated and complete, with a few pages misnumbered. Title printed in black ink only. A history of the practice of tithing, examining its origin and application in society, asserting that tithing originated in civil rather than canonical law (see Wikipedia). This work, while originally passing the censors, was eventually suppressed, as well as any response Selden could have made to his detractors (Encyclopedia Britannica). John Selden was a British scholar and politician, writing several works on both ancient English and Jewish laws, as well as other scholarly works. This copy was presumably printed in 1680, according to the ESTC, which gives the 1618 title as 'The Historie of Tythes,' and states that it was printed in red and black. POOR/FAIR condition. Ex-theological library. Label present at the foot of the spine, with several blindstamps throughout, as well as a few in ink. Front cover and first endpaper DETACHED but present. Moderate to heavy scuffing to the covers, with minor soiling, uneven moderate darkening and toning. Leather worn along the extremities, with a ¾ inch chip missing from the upper spine. Text block solid, with a few scattered lines in the margins. Previous owner's bookplate on the inside rear cover. Extensive summary/dissertation of the work, in ink, on the blank page preceding the title. Ownership signature present. Wing A2428A. ESTC S117082. Bookseller Inventory # 007492
