About This Item

London: In the Savoy: Printed by E and R. Nutt, and R. Gosling, (Assigns of Edward Sayer, Esq;) for D. Browne, at the Black Swan without Temple-Bar; and J. Schuckburgh, at the Sun next the Inner Temple Gate in Fleetstreet., 1737. First edition. Hardcover. Good +. 8 x 12 1/2 inches. 132 pages. With ads for law books facing title page. Quarter calf with marbled boards. On the top of title page is written 'By Daniel Call', with the 'By' crossed-out with 2 lines. This signature matches perfectly Call's ownership signature on title page of a copy of Wythe's 'Decisions of Cases in Virginia...' which is in the Wolf Law Library. Daniel Call (1765-1840) studied law with George Wythe and was the author of a 6 volume 'Reports of cases Argued and Adjudged in the Court of Appeals of Virginia' 1801. On front pastedown is ownership signature of Wm. F. Watson - he apparently wrote on ffep 'A treatise of Equity by Lord Gilbert', in a long passage in writing seeming to be Call's, he argues that this book is certainly not by Gilbert but Ballow, he cites a copy in his possession of the Dublin 1769 3rd ed. which has Lord Gilbert as author even though text is very similar to this 1737. Condition is Good+; Boards have water stains, corners worn, hinges repaired with brown paper tape, rear is holding, front cover detached retaining ffep, other than the noted writing, the text pages are unmarked with the exception of 2 marginal notes, some pages are lightly toned, some with marginal stains.
