About This Item

London: Printed for John Wilcox, at Virgil's Head against the New Church in the Strand, 1733. Leather Bound. Very Good. The Second EDITION, to which is added, a Table of the principal Transactions in each King's reign. 8vo. pp. xxxi, (1), 374, (19 - The Table), publisher's ad. to verso of (20), last leaf. Decorative head-piece to text and table, and similar tail-piece to end of last chapter. Rebound in a modern calf - last fifty years(?) - with five raised bands to spine, with double bordered gilt compartments and black leather labels with gilt titles to spine, new endpapers. Gilt double ruled borders to boards, pages have decent margins. A standard work on the topic of taxation for many years, it covers feudal pledges, penalties for conquered enemies and expenses such as defence, maintenance of the royal household and the suppression of heresy. Pages somewhat browned, a minor dampstain to some of the text block, a couple of minor scuff marks to binding but still a sharp copy and firm binding.
