Wing M 120. Wolffheim I, 793. Gregory/Sonneck S. 160. Erste Ausgabe. - Thomas Mace (1612/13-1706 ?), musician and writer on music, had been appointed a clerk (i.e. singing man) at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1655, and continued in that role for most of his life thereafter. He is most famous for the publication of Musick's monument, or, a remembrancer of the best practical musick, in 1676, 'a quaint and useful book' (Scholes). In spite of the clear evidence of his authorship of this unrealistically optimistic diatribe on the state of English roads, it does seem seriously off-piste for 'one of the Clerks of Trinity-Colledge Chappel in Cambridge'. It shows, however, a genuine interest in, and a remarkably good grasp of, the civil engineering required. In addition to other practical ideas, he proposes a scheme for straighter two-lane highways where travellers would keep to the right-hand side. - Tls. leicht fleckig, insgesamt gutes Ex. Vors. erneuert. - Exlibris.
