London: W.H. for Abel Roper, 1650.
Later Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Item #043237
Full calf rebacked and cornered, worn at the edges and much used but sound. A later edition of Cotgraves Dictionarie of the French and English Tongues (1611), the first, though, with Howell's additions. Both the inclination to put such a thing together, and the book itself, are emblematic of the late but fierce blooming English Renaissance. Printed in three columns, lacking the blanks with new endpapers added. Separate titles for the two sections with the English-French in an architectural border. Mild to moderate foxing throughout, light dampstain early on. Size: Folio. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Language & Linguistics; Reference. Inventory No: 043237.
