Later paneled and gilt calf, hinges a bit rubbed, cracking and weakening but still an attractive binding; bookplates of Charles John Shopee on pastedown and added endpaper. Either the 1659 or 1663 edition of Thomas Langley's translation and abridgement of Vergil's De inventoribus rerum. Lacking the title and preliminaries - the 1663 edition was the same as the 1659 but with the title and preliminaries canceled, likely this was a leftover that was canceled but not bound up with the new title page (the 1663 had no preliminaries). Scattered minor foxing, minor old marks (short notes, underlines) and soiling, small burn mark in one margin and a tiny hole at the upper right of page 1, trimmed a little close in spots, but not obscuring any text. 311, 26pp. Size: Octavo (8vo). Previous owner's book-plate inside front cover. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Science & Technology; History. Inventory No: 046187.
