Condition: Very Good


Thomas Gent. Annales Regioduni Hullini: or, The Entertaining History of the Royal and Beautiful Town of Kingston upon Hull (Sold at the Printing-Office [of T. Gent] near the Star in Stone-Gate, York ; By Ward and Chandler, Scarborough, and at their shop in London ; by George Ferraby, Hull ; and by J. Wilford, London, 1735)

Octavo. 201 pages plus index, addenda, postscript and list of subscribers. Six plates including frontispiece. Hardcover. Rebound in the late 19th/early 20th century in a green armorial leather binding stamped in gilt with what appears to be all maps and plates present. Marbled endpapers. Five raised bands.

Condition: VG with some edge wear and wear to hinges. Top edge of text block slightly darkened with age. Handwritten list of plates tipped in on blank page in front. Nice condition.

Provenance: Armorial binding of a lion rampant crest with shield containing three lions rampant and the motto: "Dum Clavum Rectum Teneam" or "If only I go steady", an invocation to do your duty, whatever the cost. A variation of the motto was used by William Penn "Dum Clavum Teneam", though I do not represent this in any way to be a Penn family crest.

Thomas Gent (1693, Ireland – 1778, York) was a printer and writer, born in Ireland, who spent most of his working life in York. He authored several works, mostly histories, but was financially unsuccessful.
