London: printed for Jonah Bowyer, at the Rose in Ludgate-Street, 1707. First Edition. Flexible boards. Very good-. A rare find! A first edition of this work very likely from the library of Charles Killigrew, Master of the Revels, as appointed in 1677 and the brother to (British Royal) Brigadier General Robert Killigrew, who is mentioned in the book and was killed in Spain in the battle of Almanza the 14th day of April Ano.Dni. 1707. (With Charles' signature on the title page). Rebound in 20th cent. in brown imitation leather over flexible boards with black cloth spine labels and gilt titles (very tightly and, frankly, poorly done.) With gold titling on the spine and cover. New, brown endpapers. Period inscription on first original flyleaf, a short poem about the love of books on the original (the writing seems to match Killigrew’s signature), which has some loss to the edges. Rear pages waved through second half of book. Provenance note: Listed as item no. 118 in the year 1725 auction catalogue of Killigrew & Beale's libraries: Catalogus librorum in omni ferè scientiâ & facultate præstantium [electronic resource] : ex Bibliothecis Caroli Killigrew et Bartholomaei Beale Armig. or a catalogue of the libraries of Charles Killigrew, late Master of the Revels; and of Bartholomew Beale, of Bilderston in the County of Suffolk, Esquires; both lately deceased. Containing several Thousand Volumes of the most Valuable Books in Greek, Latin, English, French, Italian, and Spanish; &etc. Can't prove it ever sat in the Master's library but the signature matches exactly, according to book owners online, an authoritative website "His library was sold by retail sale in London, beginning 7.12.1725, as part of a joint sale with the books of Bartholomew Beale. The catalogue contains over 4000 lots and while it does not distinguish which ones came from which source, it seems likely that many of those relating to history and modern languages, among others, were Killigrew's.
