An impressive career Rupert (1619-1689) fought very capably for Charles I during the English Civil War, and again for Charles II as an admiral in the Anglo-Dutch Wars. He was also a scientist and the first Governor of the Hudson’s Bay Company. Rather scarce. A very good copy, corners a bit frayed, spine head slightly nicked, small stain on spine, gilt slightly rubbed, front hinge split, issued without dust jacket.
