About This Item

LONDON: Printed by the assignes of John More,and sold by Matthew Walbancke and William Coke, 1641 A good copy of this scarce work, as issued in leaflet form with the title page and reverse of the final page darkened, having acted as a binding. Published after Bacon's death, this work is of particular interest because of Bacon's involvement in the treason charge against his former patron, the Earl of Essex. He was a member of the legal team lead by the Attorney General, Lord Coke and drafted the initial account of the trial. The title page and reverse of the back page are darkened but the internal text is in good to very good condition with some light toning to edges and a small mark at the page affecting about 4 leaves. Measuring 18.4 x 13.8 cms.

Other areas include children's books, particularly late 1800's-early 1900's - again illustrated; and literature pre 1900.When you order books from us we ensure that they are properly packed to protect condition, and we always use recorded or 'signed for' postal services for more secure delivery. Please note that we have recently moved to the beautiful Orkney Islands, where we intend to open a bookshop over the next year.
