Restitution of Decayed Intelligence in Antiquities Concerning the Most Noble and Renowned English Nation

London: Samuel Mearne, John Martyn, Henry Herringman, 1673. Hardcover. Later edtion, first published 1605. 8vo (6.5 x 4.25 inches), bound in 1830s calf, very good, light restoration to front outer joint and inner hinge, (24) 374 (18) pp, with engraved vignette of the Tower of Babel on title page and ten other fairly large in-text engravings of pagan idols, etc. Of value to linguists as an early exploration of the Anglo-Saxon roots of English including a long glossary of "ancient" words and their definitions in Shakespearean English. Apparently this includes a first recital of the Pied Piper of Hamelin story when first published in 1605, and we assume this edition contains it, too. Very Good. Item #H16814
