Paris, Matthew: (Watts, William, ed.:) Historia Major. Juxta Exemplar Londinense 1640. verbatim recusa [...] Huic Editione accesserunt, duorum Offarum Merciorum Regum; & viginti trium Abbatum S. Albani Vitae: una cum Libro Additamentorum. Londini [London], Impensis A. Mearne, T. Dring, B. Tooke, T. Sawbridge, & G. Wells 1684. Folio, pp. [xxxiv], 424, 451-859, 856-861, [i], [xcvi], [xii], 961-1048, 1041-1175, [xxxvii] + portrait frontispiece. With all usual errors in pagination. The section titled 'Adversaria sive Variantes Lectiones' and the Indices are bound after the main part of the text, instead of at the beginning as in the ESTC copy. Title in red and black with woodcut device, some woodcut initials. A few tiny smudges and wax spots, small blue ink mark to lower margin of frontis, short closed tear to lower margin pp.695-6. Contemporary dark brown mottled calf, sturdily rebacked, raised bands, gilt title label, edges sprinkled red. Very scuffed, edges worn but corners repaired, a very good, sound copy overall. Reprint of the first complete edition of Matthew Paris' works. Watts added to Archbishop Parker's edition of the 'Historia Major' (1571) Matthew's unpublished minor works (real and suppositious), besides his own notes on variant readings and parallel sources (Roger Wendover, William Rishanger, and others). He produced overall an impressive piece of early modern English historical scholarship, complete with glossary and index. Matthew Paris (d. 1259), a historian and the official chronicler at St. Alban's monastery, was a favourite of King Henry III, and a sharp reporter on contemporary political life. Watts (1590-1649) was also chaplain to Prince Rupert of the Rhine, the Civil War commander. Wing P 359; ESTC R25517   Ref: 51274
