    1671 Biography of William the Conqueror

    Samuel Clarke. The Life and Death of William, Surnamed the Conqueror. King of England, and Duke of Normandy. Who dyed Anno Christi, 1087. London: Printed for Simon Miller at the signe of the Star, at the West end of St. Pauls, 1671.

    Twelvemo. Engraved woodcut frontispiece, title, [1, blank], 1-18, 91, 20-40, 37-39, 36. Mispaginated.

    Modern plain, stiff paper boards with a printed label adhered to the front cover. New endpapers. Significant soiling and paper loss to the fore-edge margin of the textblock, most noticeable on the terminal pages. Scattered very minor contemporary marginalia, including the title page. Though the pagination is technically incorrect, the catchwords match. A very good copy of an intriguing antiquarian title.
