About This Item

London: London: printed [by Henry Denham] in Aldersgate street at the signe of the Starre, 1587. Full leather. Very Good. Second edition, large folio; 7-1080, 1080-1371, 1371-1421, 1490-1491, 1536-1555, 1574-1592, [56]pp. Bound in early eighteenth century panelled calf over earlier (possibly contemporary) wooden boards, expertly respined and recornered, five raised spine bands between blind single fillets, gilt-lettered red morocco spine label to second compartment. Lacks title-page, preliminaries and first three leaves of text [ie. first 7 leaves A-A6 and B1), last three leaves of concluding table and closing colophon leaf, otherwise complete with normal mispaginations. A couple of early leaves with professional marginal repairs, very occasional much earlier marginal repairs occasionally touching the odd letter, short wormtrack to lower margin of a handful of leaves, engraved armorial bookplate to front pastedown, sporadic unobtrusive spots and stains, overall a clean and very attractive example of the Holinshed volume from which Shakespeare extensively drew material for his History plays. Printed in black (gothic) typeface and with attractive woodcut capitals and head and tail pieces. Includes censored pages 1328-31 removed from a majority of copies at the press following an Act of Privy Council. Archivally conserved by Arthur Green of Malvern, UK, involving complete restitching on double cords and conservation of its early wooden boards; conservation details can be found at Arthur Green's website. A very handsome example. ESTC S122178 (vol.3).

We maintain a small and select stock of English and Continental antiquarian titles from the dawn of western printing to the 19th century, and aim to offer original, early examples of scarce and sought-after texts.
