Condition: Fair/N


William Jaggard, 1613 A very rare and strange book. This volume was published as a complete book in 1613; a second volume was added later in 1619. it is well titled 'a treasurie' - being a collection of stories, histories, facts and beliefs jumbled together in no discernable order. It is in 9 'bookes' each divided into chapters. As an example booke 4 moves smoothly from the Kingdome of Persia in chapter 1 to 'In defence of the Gaules' in chapter 2, to 'Of the Switzers Cantones' in chapter 3. There are fascinating snippets for example, about Orders of Knights and the nature of 'Dreames'. The book has been rebound in a full leather binding with raised bands, and gilt decoration and titles. It has numerous woodcuts as headers and as decoration to initial letters in chapters. The title page and preliminaries are missing and there is also some loss from the index at the rear which ends with the contents of the 4th booke. There is a dedication to 'virtuous Lord Anne D'Urfe' and a table of the Authors Names. Both of these have some loss and have had paper repairs. The first booke has 'Alex Beedie, his book' written in ink across the top margin. Generally the contents are sound and clean apart from the odd brown stain and browning to page edges. A few pages are frayed at the edges - including pages 405-408 and 961 onwards. 963 has small loss of text and the first index page has loss affecting part of the text. There is an ink inscription to the back of page 965.
