About this Item: excudebat Tho. Braddyll, & prostant apud Georg. Pawlett, Londini, 1687. Folio, 36 cm. . Full leather. Front cover detached. 6 raised bands. Heavy wear to spine. Title page in red and black. Imprimatur Rob. Midgley. Apr. 27. 1686 on verso of title page: 576 pp. Elegant engraved frontispiece of Spelman, signed: R. White Sculp. Spelman was one of the earliest English antiquaries. He belonged to the Society of Antiquaries, of which his friends Sir Robert Cotton and William Camden were also members. .The first part this dictionary of terms was published in 1626 covering terms through the letter 'L' with title: Henrici Spelmanni equit. Anglo-Brit. Archaeologus. He continued to work at the subject until 1638. Spelman died before completing the book which was edited and completed by William Dugdale in 1664. In 1617, Spelman served on a commission to inquire into disputed Irish estates, and later took part into legal inquiries into the exactions levied on behalf of the Crown in the civil and ecclesiastical courts. During his studies of the foundations of English law based on the original documents, he found it impossible to easily assign proper meanings to Anglo-Saxon and Latin terms, so he compiled a glossary of law terms. Spelman relied on original documents and consulted with scholars throughout Europe. The book is remarkable for its scholarly completeness and for its method of determining original meanings. Spelman also possessed a detailed collections of medieval records, in particular of church councils. Photographs and further details about the condition of the book can be obtained by email by contacting bookseller. Seller Inventory # HS26089

About this Item: Londini excudebat Tho. Braddyll & prostant apud Georg. Pawlett & Guil. Freeman., 1687. Folio (348 x 222mm), pp. [xxii], 576; with a fine large portrait of the author by R. White opposite the dedication; title page in red and black; a very good copy in contemporary vellum over pasteboard, probably Dutch; with morocco label (upper free endpaper replaced). Bookplate of the Rev. John L. Moilliet of Abberley Rectory (Worcs), dated 1865; more recently in Dorset County Library, with bookplate. Third edition. The Glossarium was first published in 1626, but the first part (A-L) only, and then completed in 1664, long after Spelman's death by his protégé William Dugdale, from the papers Spelman left him, on behalf of his nephew Charles Spelman. This was an important glossary of obsolete Latin and English terms, mostly legal but in fact encompassing a wide range of subjects from archaeology to government posts. It was the greatest achievement of Sir Henry Spelman: in his early studies, he had so much difficulty assigning the proper meanings to Anglo-Saxon and Latin terms that he found it necessary to begin by defining the vocabulary of the original documents, and sample sheets were submitted to foreign scholars in 1619. The importance of the work was immediately recognised, both in England and on the continent. Following Dugdale's completion of the book, this edition has been revised again: notable features are a new and splendid portrait of Spelman by R. White, based on the image by Cornelius Johnson (reproduced in new DNB); and a twelve page preface in Latin by the editor, addressed to the reader. He outlines the history of the work and its author, its first publication and then revision by 'Dom. Guilielmum Dugdale, magnæ Doctrinæ & Integratatis Virum'; and he also lists other works by Spelman, and his son John, editor of the life of King Alfred published posthumously in 1678. This preface is signed 'J.A.', which I had initially thought might be John Aubrey: however, Dr William Poole has kindly pointed out to me that it is in fact the lawyer Sir James Astrey (d. 1709), formerly of Brasenose, Oxford. In his Fasti, Anthony Wood (whom the editor says is his particular friend) notes that Astrey 'augmented and corrected the third edition . and before it hath put a large account of the life, manners and writing of the said Sir Henry' (Fasti, ed. Bliss, II 361). Provenance. Small stamp on title 'Bibliot. Bonclerici': this is Monsignor Antonio Bonclerici di Cagli, Italian antiquary of the late 18th century; then bookplate of the Rev. John L. Moilliet of Abberley Rectory (Worcs), dated 1865; more recently in Dorset County Library, with bookplate, and their small library stamp on the title verso. Wing S4926; Lowndes p. 2474 ('the best edition'). Seller Inventory # 19721

About this Item: Londini: excudebat Tho. Braddyll & prostant apud Georg. Pawlett & Guil. Freeman, 1687. Third edition. Folio, pp. [xxii], 576 + engraved portrait frontispiece. Title-page in red and black, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, double-column text. Dampstain to gutter from preliminary blanks to first leaf of text, occasional light patchy toning, a few faint ink blots. Later 18th-century brown, lightly diced calf recently rebacked in goatskin with raised bands, black and gilt morocco title label. Gilt borders and armorial centrepiece to each board, all edges coloured yellow, marbled endpapers reinforced with cloth at hinges. Spine very slightly rubbed at head and tail, board edges worn and chipped, a little light crackling to surface, corners frayed. A very good copy, with interesting provenance. Armorial bookplate of Rugby School to ffep. Armorial gilt stamps to boards and bookplate to front paste-down, all of Sir Simon Richard Brissett Taylor, 2nd Baronet of Lysson Hall, Jamaica (1783-1815). He was nephew and heir to Simon Taylor (1740-1813), planter and slave owner who was at the time of his death one of the richest and most powerful men in Jamaica. Uncle and nephew were very close; an enormous amount of correspondence between the two still exists and is now housed at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies (University of London). Simon R.B. Taylor's library was eventually auctioned by R.H. Evans on 3rd June 1833. This setting of the title-page has 'auctior' in the edition statement and the second line of imprint ends 'Free-'. Another setting has 'auctor', and the second line of the imprint ends 'Freeman;'. Sir Henry Spelman (1563/41641), celebrated historian and antiquary, published the first part of this work (covering the letters A-L) in 1626 as Archaeologus. He had moved to London in 1612 and found himself part of an encouraging community of fellow scholars such as John Selden and in particular Sir Robert Cotton, whose extensive library he was allowed to use. Spelman's work required him to make sense of the meaning and usage of historic terminology used by the church and in common law, particularly Latin and Anglo-Saxon terms. It was this need that prompted him to begin work on what was to eventually become Archaeologus. Publication of the work, for which Spelman bore the full cost, was encouraged by a number of scholars including Peiresc, to whom Spelman sent samples prior to its release. The finished glossary 'encompassed the study of the usages, offices, ranks, ceremonies, and rules in the medieval church and law in the context of the words used in Europe' (ODNB). A great deal of Spelman's work remained incomplete or unpublished at the time of his death in 1641. William Dugdale (16051686), who had met Spelman in 1638, completed and saw to the publication of the remainder of the glossary, which first appeared as Glossarium Archaiologicum in 1664.
