Oxford: William Turner, Printer, 1631. First Edition. Hardcover. 24mo - over 5 - 5¾" tall. Very good condition. Item #019267
319 pages of text, followed by [i] colophon, and preceded by two engravings. Original blind-ruled calf without any spine labeling. The front hinge has been repaired, and an antique front flyleaf has been added. The engraved title page has minor browning/toning and soiling, as does the engraved armorial dedication page. The title page is apparently the only 17th Century publication containing a portrait of the first Stuart King. On the title page, King James faces the reader, while King David is holding a harp; engraved by William Marshall (active ca. 1617-1649). The title page and final page also has minor soiling. The text, except for a small number of tiny spots of soiling, remains clean and unmarked. Measures 5+5/8 inches (height). First edition.
