Minimal marks or light blemishes commensurate with age else a lovely copy. Gilt edges to the text block. Some ink marks and marginal marking to the title and first prelim. Overall a very nice copy. A rather scarce edition with ESTC on listing two copies in private collections.
Bound in a superb black calf binding with gilt décor. Ornate gilt windows to the boards, gilt décor to the spine with lettering.
Ornate inner gilt dentelles to the boards. Above the date 1705 there was originally Vol 1 which has had the gilt rubbed away. This may have been part of a collection previously but is a single work in its own right and not a single volume from a set. Very light rubbing to the edges or corners otherwise in excellent condition.
