Beale S8; STC 9273

Probably the most beautiful of the 16th-century printings of Magna Carta, this edition features a title page, almanac, calendar, and index printed in striking red and black.

Although there are no clear ownership marks, the copy includes handwritten notes—in perhaps three different hands—on several blank leaves.

The volume was acquired in 1932.
