London: Printed for Charles Rivington, 1724. [xx], 310, 5 pp. Reprinted 2005 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584774600; ISBN-10: 1584774606. Hardcover. New. $34.95 * Reprint of the first edition. Salmon [1679-1767] was a prolific writer on legal, historical and geographical subjects. He claimed that he went to sea and explored the world for many years. These travels may have furnished the information used in the book's section on marriage rites, which discusses the practices of Denmark, Livonia, Lapland, Germany, Greece, Armenia, Turkey, Persia, India, Ceylon, Siam, China, Japan, Morocco, Guinea, Ethiopia, Chili, Peru, Brazil, Paraguay, America, Mexico, Canada, Russia and Sweden. Whether he actually visited these places or not, Salmon's book remains a fascinating document of English social values, anthropological views and legal philosophy in the immediate decades after the Civil War and Restoration. This book was published anonymously in 1724. The second edition, which states the author's name, was published later that year.
