***Monro, His Expedition, and Observations--ORIGINAL WORK 1636 WITH NOTES*** $1250.00

This is A MOST UNUSUAL FIND!! It is an original copy of "Monro, His Expedition, and Observations (Monro, His expedition with the worthy Scots regiment (called Mac-Keyes-regiment) levied in August 1626)." Written by Robert Monro. Two Parts in a Single Volume. There is no formal title page in this book--publication information at the end of the book reads only "Licence is granted for the printing of this Booke. Hampton Court, Decemb. 8. 1636. John Coke." Book may have actually been published in 1637, but the License for publication is dated 1636. Monro was a Scotsman serving as an officer during the Thirty Years' War. Bound in one-quarter leather (leather spine) with paper over board covers. Some light wear to leather at head of spine, slight wear to edges of paper over board covers. PLEASE NOTE: On the front endpaper is lengthy note written by a soldier named J. Brown, 19th Regt. The note provides some background/history of Monro and his military career, and his service during the Thirty Years' War. Note also describes Monro's collection of notes and observations that led to the publication of this work. No markings beyond the aformentioned note, no significant damage. Some creasing to a few pages. A Very Good copy, missing the title page. THIS IS AN EARLY, ORIGINAL COPY AND NOT A CONTEMPORARY, ON-DEMAND REPRINT!! Measures 7 5/8 X 11 1/8, 224 pages plus the index. While contemporary, on-demand copies of this book are available (for upwards of $353), I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE ANY OTHER ORIGINAL COPIES OF THIS WORK IN ALL OF MY INTERNET SEARCHES!! I will offer this original, unique early copy for only $1250.00 plus $4.00 S&H in the US. Shipping costs to Canada will be considerably less than the general international rates quoted. PLEASE INQUIRE IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS UNIQUE ITEM. Thanks for shopping mellowpagesrarebooks.com
