2 Volumes Clarkes two volume life of James II, complete as called for. Printed in a handsome quarto, this copy is bound in half calf over green cloth. Both bindings are sound but the bindings are scuffed and bumped to extremities with significant wear at the top of the spine of both volumes. The books have the bookplate of Geoffrey Wentworth, Woolley Park and a large genealogical fold out plate to the first volume. Foxing throughout but otherwise very good internally. Clarke dedicated these volumes to his employer, the Prince Regent. His work is important because it contains part of James II's writings for which the manuscript is now lost.
