3.   Defoe, Daniel
Jure Divino: A Satyr. In Twelve Books. By the Author of The True-Born- Englishman
Publisher: (no publisher or printer stated) London 1706
First Edition Fine in a recently rebound full leather (calf) binding with five raised bands on the spine, gilt text in one of the compartments and ornaments in the others, and with sprinkled panels on the covers. A quarto measuring 12 5/8" by 8". [4], i-xxviii, [4], i-vii, [1], 26; 32; 10, 15-28; 30; 32; 20, 28; 34; 24; 26; 32; 23, [4]. Page 16 of Book I is misprinted as page 12, page 17 of Book IV is misprinted as "Book VI" (a fact not appearing in any bibliographies to date); and, in Book III pages 11 through 14 are not present (as is typical) but the catchwords match with no pages missing. The engraved frontispiece by Michiel Van der Gucht of DeFoe is missing. However, as stated in Foxon's English Verse 1701-1750 the frontispiece was optional for the authorized edition which was sold by subscription. A foolscap watermark is discernible on the last page of text conforming to Foxon's description of the authorized edition. This is not the pirated edition printed by Benjamin Bragg and distributed just a day before the Defoe's authorized edition. A very clean and bright copy with no foxing and minimal tanning.
