Condition: Good/N


Fleetestrete, within Temple Barre, at the Signe of the Hand and Starre, London: Richarde Totteli, 1587 A good to very good copy of Richard Tottel's 1587 publication of Magna Charta with associated statutes. Richard Tottel (spelt in a variety of forms including Tottill and Tottell) was an English publisher specialising in legal publications, for which he was granted a patent in1553. He issued several editions of Magna Charta: this one is similar to his 1576 publication but appears to be longer (by 3 pp). The publication is in Latin, French and English. This copy is bound in full leather, retaining the contemporary boards and adding a new plain spine with raised bands. The old title label has been remounted. Internally there is an armorial bookplate of Thomas Dawson to the front pastedown. The old endpapers have been retained with repair at the joints. Contents: initial blank; title; To the Reader 2pp; Table I 3pp; Table II 8pp; blank; Text pp 1-250 (numbered on recto only); final leaf - imprinted 1587; 5 blanks. Text with decorative initial capitals. The title page and 'To the Reader' both have paper repair to the side edge. There are old ink notes to a couple of blank pages and a little scholarly annotation. The paper is toned to varying degrees and with occasional staining. A scarce work

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"
