[Provenance: Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun] Arnoldi Vinnii J.C. In quatuor libros

institutionum imperialium commentarius academicus & forensis. Editio quarta. Amsterdam, D. Elzevier, 1665, (8),888,(18),(4 Prooemium),(2) p., woodcut printer's mark on title p., contemp. sprinkled calf, gilt and ribbed spine, 4to.
Offsetting from turn-ins. "Prooemium" misbound in the general index at the end instead of after the Index Titulorum at the beginning. Spine ends chipped and lower corners bumped; upper joint starting. Dekkers p. 179, no. 3; Willems, 1367 (stating that this is in fact the fifth edition). Influential work on Roman law, reprinted up to the end of the 18th century, by Arnoldus Vinnius (1588-1657), professor of law at Leiden university. With owner's entry of Andrew Fletcher in pen on the title p. Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun (1655-1716), Scottish bibliophile, globetrotter, author of political works and member of parliament, friend of the philosopher John Locke. The greater part of the huge library (6000 books across a wide range of subjects, often bought during his travels) was sold in the 1960s. His choice of books reflects his wide-spread interest in law and government (both theoretical and in practice), in politics, conspiracy and intrigue, religion, history and literature. See P.J.M. Willems, Bibliotheca Fletcheriana, the extraordinary library of Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun, Reconstructed and Systematically Arranged (1999); W.C. Mackenzie, Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun, his life and times (1935). In our auction 25 we already sold a number of books from his library. See also other lots in this auction.
