Original 18th Century full vellum binding with five raised bands and gilt lettering to the spine, blind ruling and design to both boards and marbled endpapers. With engraved title vignette, initial, head & tail pieces, publisher's coat of arms on page 299 and verso of page 461 and 'Le Rime' with its own title page. Bibliography of author's more important editions of his work up to 1723 between pages liii-lxiv. A beautiful early binding with some worming to the foot of the spine, splitting up to a quarter of the front hinge, with no movement, a few small cracks to the raised bands and light scuffing to the corners but, considering its age, still in very good condition. Internally clean and crisp with a few sporadic spots to the text and two previous owner's bookplates 'Napier' and 'Thomas Ashby' to front endboard.
