Madox, Thomas: Baronia Anglica. An History of Land-Honors and Baronies, and of Tenure in Capite. Verified by Records. (Bound before) A Compleat Index to Mr Madox's History of the Exchequer. London: Printed for Robert Gosling 1736; 1741. First editions. Folio, 2 works in 1, pp. [2], 292 [xxviii]; [216], title of second is a cancel (second issue), engraved vignette to first title, a few large engraved initials and engraved headpieces. First title and verso of last leaf a little dusty, slight toning, small clean tear at gutter of one leaf, occasional very slight marginal spotting. Modern half calf over marbled boards, modern endpapers. Modern ex-libris of Robert Smith, dated 2008 to ffep; early biographical annotation on author; occasional early marginalia. The first edition, posthumously published, of this study by the celebrated legal antiquary Thomas Madox (1666-1727), who was historiographer-royal from 1714, and who is singled out by David C. Douglas ('English Scholars 1660-1730') for special praise, with the assessment (p. 243) that "even to-day, he seems to move among the moderns as if, apart from the immensity of his productions, he were one of themselves". The 'Index' was prepared by the editor of 'Baronia Britannica', and first issued with that work in 1741. It is a detailed glossary of the uncommon words used in Madox's 'History of the Exchequer', with which it was reprinted in 1769. The 'Index' title reads at the top: 'This Day is Published, (Price Half a Guinea, Sewed,).' ESTC T97064. Lowndes 1448. Brunet III 1289. Graesse IV 332.   Ref: 53550  show full image..
