About this Item

First Irish edition and, notably, printed for a => woman publisher. Sir Geoffrey (also given as Jeffrey or Jeffray) Gilbert (1674?1726), an eminent English judge, became chief baron of the Irish exchequer to the acclaim of all and sundry ? until a case he was hearing put the Irish House of Lords in direct conflict with the British, leading to his brief imprisonment and, though much of the situation was beyond his control, much subsequent blame from the Irish for the passing of the Dependency of Ireland on Great Britain Act of 1719. During his otherwise more fortunate career, Gilbert wrote a number of legal works, none of which were published until after his death but all of which were well-received upon their appearance. This particular treatise was => praised by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1815, and by John Adams; it appears here in its first Irish and third overall edition, following the first of 1730. 8vo (19.8 cm, 7.8"). vii, [1], 144, [36 (index)] pp. ESTC T207893; Sweet & Maxwell (2nd ed.), I, 453:20. Contemporary speckled calf, joints reinforced some time ago, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and blind-tooled bands. Pages age-toned and lightly cockled, with mild to moderate offsetting and spotting; last few leaves of index waterstained. One leaf with printing flaw: final words of 10 lines at bottom of page printed out of true. Not pristine, but sturdy and still respectable. Bookseller Inventory # 34394
