About This Item

Early English treatise on maritime laws, namely navigation, shipping, tonnage, customs, and trade, printed in both Roman and black letter fonts.

With an early engraved bookplate of Marques of Tweeddale. Also with the signature of Nathaniel Westland, dated 1675. Westland, a prominent merchant from Burlington, New Jersey, was appointed agent for the sale of land by the West New Jersey Society, a great land company organized in London in 1691. Being a merchant, Westland would have had much use of this book to check shipping rates on cargo from England.

Small 8vo. Leather binding, rebacked, leather label on spine. In the Savoy: Printed by the Assigns of J. Bill and Chr. Barker, 1675. First Edition. Fine.
