Originally written in Latin, this work is Camden's best known. Camden was an English antiquarian, historian, topographer and herald.
Rebound in a full cloth binding. Externally, excellent with minor shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are slightly age toned. Small portions to margins missing to final few leaves not affecting text. Cockling to pages. Small ink spill to 286-291. The odd spot throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD.
