SCARCE TITLE IN FULL LEATHER WITH EXTRAORDINARY TOOLING ON THE EDGES
COMYNS, Sir John ~ A Digest of the Laws of England.
London: Strahan and Woodfall, 1792
6 volume set, 9.5 inches tall. An extraordinary 18th century binding in full sheep with blind bands, splendid triple labels and twin blind fillets framing the boards. With exceptional speckled pink lettering to the edges indicating that this set belonged to the Circuit Library of the Chester Crown Court. There are no other inscriptions and the text is very clean. There has been expert repair to the joints of two of the volumes. We can find no other examples of this style of lettering on the edges. A remarkable set of this scarce work.
