SUMMER FAIR HIGHLIGHT Marc Harrison Ellwood Books

Marc Harrison, trading as Ellwood Books will be at Stand No2 in the Galleon Suite for the Bloomsbury Summer Book Fair, and also have a large selection of books for sale in the Edward VII suite across the courtyard. The following is just one of the many highlights you will find among his stock.

lizetDe Sacris Utriusq; Instrumenti Libris in Vulgare Eloquium minime vertendis, rudiq; plebi haud quaquam in vulgandis, dialogus inter Pantartcheum et Neoterum. Together with De Mobilibus Ecclesiae Praeceptionibus. Together with De Confessione Auriculari Tractatus (In three books, with an introduction, De Monastico Instituto Liber Unus; De Huivsce Seculi Caecitate, Ac Circumventione): Lyon . An interesting collection of works – two of the three having their own title pages. It would seem that these are in fact the constituent parts of Aduersus pseudoeua[n]gelicam haeresim libri seu commentarij nouem, duobus excusi uoluminibus. Which was published in Lyon in 1551. The titles here do not reference this earlier work, but the pagination conforms to Copac’s entries. Early, possibly contemporary full leather boards with embossed blind stamped decoration and gilt decoration to front and rear board. A recent spine has been put on the work. Inside are three works, with small tabs denoting the begining of each work.

lizet2Overall this work is in excellent condition for its age. The early boards are a little rubbed, and have a light scratch to the rear board, but overall are in very good shape. The spine is nicely matched LIZET, Pierre. [LIZETII, Petri] (1552)
, but almost brand new. Unusually, perhaps because of the composite nature of the work, the spine has 6 raised bands, with a gilt decoration to each panel, but no titles to it. Inside, the inside paper is a little chipped, and torn to the boards, but this has been pasted down (presumably when re-backed). The front and rear end papers are a touch nicked and marked – but not badly. The rest of the book is very tidy. There is a small amount of worm damage to the corner of the first few pages. lizet3Not affecting text. The pages are otherwise clean. Throughout the text there are quite a few annotations and marginalia in ink. These (including underlining) seem to be contemporary with the work, and are seemingly in Greek and Latin (there are a few later annotations in English in pencil). These don’t affect the text. 4to over 9 ¾” – 12” tall, Full Leather. £5,000.00
