London: Printed for G. Conyers, at the Ring in Little Britain, n.d. [circa 1700]. Small 8vo., 1-12, 49-228, [index], 1-24, 37-48, 25-36, with woodcut diagrams in text. Rebacked blind-panelled calf with title stamped in gilt to backstrip. Binding is in poor condition having suffered from a inadequate repair, extensive ink annotations throughout, lacking “Book II,” or pp. 13-48; The Compleat Vermin-Killer is incorrectly paginated, outer margins have some minor foxing, otherwise well preserved for a book that has clearly been read and re-read many times. Lupton’s note to the reader claims, “The many Impressions of this Book, shew its Reception to have been great; and I suppose this to be the One and Twentieth...” First published in 1579 A Thousand Notable Things... was Lupton’s least moralistic work, but his most popular. It comprises a sundry collection of folk remedies and witty sayings largely drawn from Renaissance encyclopedias. A rebound copy sold recently at Swann’s for $2990. Stott 1110. Hall 271. (Item Id: 108332)
