Dugdale, William: A Perfect Copy of All Summons of the Nobility to the Great Councils and Parliaments of the Realm, for the XLIX of King Henry the IIId. Until these present Times. London: Printed by S.R. for Robert Clavell, 1685. First edition, first issue(?). pp. [12], 580, [26], lacking last blank as usual. Title a little dusty, slight toning, occasional marginal spotting. 19th-century polished calf, elaborately gilt to a border of fleurons and interlacing circles, and a centre panel surrounded by double gilt ruled border, with large gilt fleurons to corners, inner edges gilt, doublures with gilt green paper, raised bands, spine gilt ruled and lettered, corners and edges a bit rubbed, a little light staning to spine. One of 700 copies of the last work by the antiquarian and herald William Dugdale (1605-86). It is a collection of lists including the names of all aristocrats summoned to Parliament sessions from the reign of Henry III to Dugdale's own times, 'extracted from those Memorials which are on record'. Dugdale even 'normalised' several entries due to the fact that clerks particularly at the time of Henry VIII had often been guilty of 'sundry errors' or 'inadvertency'. Each section is prefaced by the royal summon document styled for that specific parliamentary session. Interestingly, the last leaf of the preliminaries features a printer's advertisement: '"Introductio ad Latinam Blasoniam", Latin and English. A Work befitting all Gentlemen, lovers of Armory and the Latin tongue. By J. Gibbon an Officer at Arms. Sold by Robert Clavell.' Wing D2491; ESTC R228678. ESTC locates only 5 copies in the US.   Ref: 53549  show full image..
