This is the 1687 printing (4.875″ x 2.75″) Georgii Buchanani Scoti Poemata Quæ Extant, Wetstenium, Amsterdam, bound in contemporary calf, with four raised bands and an attached author/title label (gold lettering in a red background).
The cover is good overall, with a surface crack at the spine, but with no significant stains, and with a solid attachment to the inside. There is moderate wear at the ends of the spine, and shallow bumps to the outside corners.
The name Thomas Long is written in ink to two front blank pages, with the date 1701. There is also reference note in ink on a blank front page. These are the only indelible markings I’ve found, though there are some pencil notes. The binding is tight throughout the book (546 numbered pages, plus appendix), with no loose or missing pages.
The frontispiece/title page is in very good condition, with the inset portrait of Buchanan clean and unfaded. I’ve found only one shallow edge tear, and several corner creases. Almost all pages have no creases. The pages have few stains, all small. No text is obscured or faded.
The accompanying photos are accurate indications of the book conditions.
