About this Item

Uncommon first edition: the "Scope and Intendment of every Paragraph" of the Irish statutes, designed to be of use both "those that have not, as those that have these Statutes at large" (p. [iii]). The author published several other studies of Irish law, including The Office and Authority of a Justice of Peace for Ireland, The Laws of Masters and Servants in Ireland (one of the earliest English-language works to focus on the field of labor law), and The Office and Authority of Sheriffs, Under-Sheriffs, Deputies, County-Clerks, and Coroners, in Ireland. ESTC. COPAC, and WorldCat locate => only four U.S. institutional holdings, one in Ireland, and one in Britain, but we know of a copy at the Irish National Library that is not found in those databases. Provenance: Title-page with inked inscription of Redmond Pursell (possibly Purcell), dated 1717; verso inscribed "Patt. Weldon his hand, dated May the 4th 1777," with "Patr. Weldon, His Book" on the first preface page and another Pursell/Purcell inscription on the first text page. 4to (20.7 cm, 8.2"). [4], 263, [1], xv, [25] pp. ESTC N31275. Modern leather old style with most of original covers laid down on the modern boards, spine with blind-tooled raised bands and gilt-stamped leather label; original leather worn and cracked. First few leaves with edges darkened/chipped and those fly-leaves with edge tears; title-page and preface margins repaired. Inked inscriptions as above, title-page additionally with later inked institutional shelf number and "withdrawn" note; fly-leaves with early inked calculations and budget notes; three instances of early inked marginalia and two printed shouldernotes with marks of emphasis. Pages age-toned with scattered small spots (a few signatures darkened or with more notable spotting), some corners bumped, smudges to last few leaves; one leaf with small hole with loss of seven letters. Solid, usable, and attractive on the shelf. Bookseller Inventory # 34133
